A really cool documentry has been made to support a new bill in Minnesota (aiming to get $8 million for paralysis research), made by the father of a newly injured young man. It features NFL punter Chris Kluwe – who spent a day in a wheelchair – to bring awareness to the real life behind spinal cord injuries. I’m included in this film too, munching on chips and salsa with Chris, and talking about the hardness of paralysis for as long as I’ve been in the game – 19 years, 6 monthss. oof).
While the film is not live on their site yet, it will be soon. In the meantime, they had an awesome premiere for the movie last Thursday (tasty white wine was had!). You can read my guest blog post on this film/research bill on site for the magazine I write for (New Mobility mag) here.
