Talking with Timmy

Friday, October 17th

6:00 p.m. Meet and Greet
7:00 p.m. Presentation


Guest speaker Timmy O’Neill is back with more inspirational stories that include leading the blind in kayaks, a Grand Canyon kayaking expedition proving the power of the human spirit.

Timmy is also screening Prevail at the event, a film he produced about his brother Sean and his first paraplegic ascent of Bridal Veil Falls. The film was recently chosen for the Adventure Film Festival and was screened at the Festival’s first showing in Boulder, CO.

The evening will start with a Meet and Greet, followed by a presentation. In addition to the movie screening, Timmy will be discussing the joys and perils of being a professional climber and how his passion led him to co-found Paradox Sports, a non-profit organization that improves people’s lives by creating physical adaptive sport communities built to inspire.

We will be holding a raffle – ½ of the proceeds will go to Paradox Sports, ½ will go to the raffle winner.

Complimentary beer provided by Victory Brewing Co., plus we’ll have light snacks.

Last year was a packed house so get to Trail Creek early and grab your seat!
