We need you help to make this important movie and share the importance of Paralympic sailing with the world.
Did you know that the International Paralympic Committee has eliminated sailing from the 2020 games??? Together, let’s show the IPC how wrong they are and get them to reinstate sailing!
Racing to Rio the Movie demonstrates that #Paralympic sailing is not about 16 countries that compete once every four years, it is about the thousands and thousands of kids, warriors and adults that these athletes and games inspire to find their abilities which far surpass their disabilities.
We are not asking you to donate to the film, we are asking your donation to support these amazing athlete/leaders and programs as they mentor the next generation!
Racing to Rio is the spark to create more programs that use sailing to heal, develop communication skills and create the next batch of leaders.
The preproduction kickoff for Racing to Rio the Movie was well attended by civic and community leaders and a host of great supporters who make Clearwater and Pinellas County the special place that it is.
We cannot thank our Racing to Rio Committee and our event sponsors enough for planning and executing this great evening.
If you want to be a VIP Sponsor for Racing to Rio, including Executive Producer credits, you cannot miss this #R2R VIP event at the Lobster Pot Bistro in Clearwater Beach on September 1. Come meet Brad in person, find out how to be part of this incredible project. Only a limited number of VIP sponsorships are available.
Rich White, program director at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center, has thrown his full support behind Racing to Rio the Movie. CCSC is an official training site for both Olympic and Paralympic sailors around the world.
CCSC is also home to Camp Awesome, a sailing program dedicated to teaching children who have high functioning Autism or Asperger’s syndrome as well as high function youth with other special needs.
We are extremely excited to welcome CCSC to Racing to Rio!
Racing to Rio is far more than the journey of a few elite athletes striving for world records, gold medals and personal bests. Racing to Rio is the story of transformation from individuals overcoming personal challenges to become world-class sailors and heroes who inspire others to face their challenges and live life to the fullest through the sport of sailing. Racing to Rio is literally about Brad Kendell's journey to the Paralympics in Rio 2016, but also serves on a larger scale as a metaphor for all people who face challenges and how they can take on life to win their own "races" by being the best they can be.
