Douglas College screening film about disability and sport on Feb. 23


In 2012, four friends drove across the country in search of adaptive sports for people with physical disabilities. They went rock climbing with people who were blind, played soccer with people who were quadriplegic and swam with people who had muscular dystrophy. The result of their journey is Endless Abilities, a documentary film that shows sport as the great equalizer, unifying people of all abilities on a level playing field.

Everyone is invited to attend a screening of the film followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers.
