The Movement

A couple of weeks ago I went to a movie at the renovated Bagdad Theater, to see the Movement film, you know how I can not resist old architecture. It was raining hard, dumping snow on the mountains, I was in the mood to hit the slopes dust off the skis and get together with friends to support my dear friend Fred Noble who has ALS - Lou Gehrigs disease.

Robert Redford and Sundance Festival presented this film by Kurt Miller, his famous father Warren Miller narrates the film.

The Movement is a movie highlighting five individuals from all walks of life. They have faced their respective disabilities and found the inspiration to overcome many obstacles. Both entertaining and inspiring, the show illustrates the surprising potentials available through adaptive sports to anyone with any form of disability. The personal stories of icons and everyday heroes of adaptive sports weaves a compelling narrative that is eye-opening and uplifting.

 

Fred Noble taught me how to ski the deep powder in Canada with CMH, well in fact I bartered a ski trip for a kitchen remodel. I am still bartering today, good old fashion transactions. When he was diagnosed with ALS this last year he decided to put all his energy in supporting the cause by starting a Ski to Defeat ALS ski event,similar to  ski out. I jumped on board.

Sponsors include Mt Hood Meadows, have to love that new quad chair they put in. Hillcrest Ski Shop  ,Les Schwab Tires, and Cerus Industrial, we are looking for more sponsors, get  involved with a fun event and have a chance to meet Fred Noble in person, see his wonderful travel photos and hear about his adventures? You do not run across many dynamic men like this. Contact me for more information. Did I mention- there is no cure?

Passion for the Mountain- Passion for Skiing- Passion for Friends, Share the Passion and Join the Movement.

    My husband and i felt very contented Chris managed to do his web research while using the ideas he got when using the web page. It’s not at all simplistic to simply happen to be giving out helpful hints which some people might have been selling. And now we see we have the writer to be grateful to for that. The explanations you have made, the easy site menu, the friendships you will make it easier to engender – it is everything great, and it is aiding our son in addition to our family recognize that this topic is amusing, which is certainly rather essential. Thanks for all the pieces!
