Event Description

Bristol Brewing Company will present One Revolution, a film documenting Chris Waddell's extraordinary journey up 19,340-foot Mount Kilimanjaro using a modified handcycle. The documentary has won numerous awards at film festivals around the globe. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Chris Waddell.

The screening will take place in the Tasting Room at Bristol Brewing Company. Bristol will donate 100% of the beer sales during the event to the One Revolution Foundation.

Chris Waddell was paralyzed in a skiing accident in 1988, but refused to let his injury slow him down. He went on to become the most decorated male skier in Paralympic history, winning 13 medals on the US Disabled Ski Team. He has been inducted into both the Paralympic Hall of Fame and the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. In 2009, Chris made the first unassisted paraplegic ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro. He now works with the Paralympics, the International Paralympic Committee, the One Revolution Foundation and tours as a motivational speaker.
