“Do The Grind Blind Challenge” Documentary Viewing – November 29th 12:00-1:00pm @ Sunnyhill

Posted November 21st 2017

On September 10, 2017, nine youth who are blind or partially sighted, each with a sighted guide, challenged themselves physically and mentally to reach the top of Grouse Mountain. The Grinders each had their own reasons for doing The Grind®. Some did it to show doubters they can achieve anything they set their mind to. Others did it to challenge themselves physically and mentally. All invested in their own well-being while creating awareness about blindness and the capabilities of youth who are blind or partially sighted.

Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) has produced a feature-length documentary on Do The Grind Blind. Their production team followed our youth from the very first training hike through to the completion of the event, highlighting their stories along the way.

Please join Christina Duncan, Recreation Therapist with the Visual Impairment Program at Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children, and Shawn Marsolais, Executive Director, of Blind Beginnings for a brief discussion after the presentation.
