ReelAbilities: Boston Disabilities Film Festival - Wampler's Ascent
Presented by ReelAbilities: Boston Disabilities Film Festival
January 31, 2014
Steve Wampler, needs to do 20,000 pull-ups to climb the famous El Capitan Mountain in Yosemite – only 2-6 inches at a time, due to his cerebral palsy. His wife and two children cheer him on from below, along with fans who have come to support his important mission. In 2002, Steve founded a camp for kids with disabilities, and his climb will be a testament to the idea that kids with disabilities can do anything which they set their minds.
