At 19,340 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world and a daunting climb for any person to attempt. Born with cerebral palsy, Bonner Paddock, not a mountain climber by his own admission and with only a few months of training under his belt, disregards his doctor's advice in the hopes of defying his condition and raising money for charity at the same time. Despite a weak lower body, spastic leg muscles, zero sense of balance and lack of climbing experience, Bonner tackles the impossible feat of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro head on. Bonner soon learns there is no preparation for what he finds on the mountain. Over 8 days, 64 miles, sheer cliffs, sub-zero temperatures, and ever-thinning oxygen, Bonner and his team are truly tested beyond their own physical and mental limits in this stirring documentary. Academy Award Nominee Michael Clarke Duncan narrates.
Great movie about how much a man can endure to help a cause that is so close to his heart . What a wonderful movie to show to children of all ages. Makes you wonder "what could I do"?
Well worth watching, very inspiring.
