“We screened ‘The Movement’ as part of our 5th Annual Teton Adaptive Sports Benefit. Our guests thought “The Movement” was entertaining, educational, and inspirational. We brought several sit skis and invited folks to get a closer look, sit in them and ask questions – this captured a lot of interest. TAS took in just over $8500, that’s a great night for us – the best to date! The support from Make A Hero was great, we received customized fliers, posters, tickets along with the DVD. The whole process was smooth, and a considerable addition to our annual event.” 

                                                    – Kurt Henry, Executive Director, Teton Adaptive Sports

“Event was a great success, ‘The Movement’ was very well received and allowed us to have a great night of fundraising with our community. We can’t wait until [Make A Hero’s] next film comes out.”

                                   – Sandy Olney, Executive Director, ASPNC – Event date 10/17/13

“The film worked really well as a way to break up the night which was put together to work as an orientation for the new and old staff for the upcoming ski season. The film was very entertaining, and it was great to see a professionally produced film that is that inspirational and educational about adaptive sports.”                                                                                              

         – Geoff Krill, Sports Director, New England Disabled Sports – Event date 11/2/13
