I’ll Push You Documentary + Fundraiser
April 10 @ April 10 - April 10
Join us at Outdoor Chattanooga for a special viewing of the documentary I’ll Push You to benefit three local women who were selected to join Justin and Patrick from the documentary to be part of a flagship “accessible” trip on El Camino De Santiago Pilgrimage Trail in Spain in the fall of 2019. Out of 90+ applicants, and only 13 spots available for individuals with disabilities; Sharon Stolberg, Carly Pearson, and Leslie King were selected to embark on this incredible journey! These three women have dedicated much of their lives to helping individuals with disabilities gain freedom through adaptive sports and outdoor experiences. Being selected for this rare opportunity gives them the ability to raise awareness and inclusion while forging a new path on a trail that has been inaccessible to people with disabilities. With the help of Leslie and other able-bodied volunteers to “push” when needed; Sharon will walk and roll, while Carly rolls over 100km of the El Camino. Even though the pilgrimage is fully supported by volunteers, and logistics are provided to assist the trio, there are other expenses including travel to Spain and the cost of obtaining and transporting an off-road wheelchair for Carly.
Come out and support these amazing women while enjoying an inspirational documentary about friendship, endurance, humanity and overcoming adversity. Donations will be accepted at the door and any amount is appreciated.
