National Canadian Film Day- Do the Grind Blind: Film Screening and Discussion

Join us for a screening of the documentary Do the Grind Blind to celebrate National Canadian Film Day!

On September 10, 2017, nine youths 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 Shawn Marsolais, Executive Director of Blind Beginnings and Christina Duncan, Recreation Therapist with the Visual Impairment Program at Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children for a discussion after the presentation.
