The film WARRIOR CHAMPIONS, will be shown at the Suffolk Y JCC, 74 Hauppauge Road, Commack, N.Y., on Sunday, November 7, 2010, at 1:00p.m.
Immediately following the film there will be a question & answer session with Scott Winkler, one of the athletes in the film and the Renaud Brothers, the films' directors.
WARRIOR CHAMPIONS tells the inspiring story of four severely wounded American soldiers who, after losing limbs and suffering paralysis in Iraq, fight to compete in the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing.
The film follows these soldier athletes for a full year as they mentor recently wounded soldiers, giving these patients the hope many thought they had lost forever.
Though at times heart wrenching, WARRIOR CHAMPIONS, is not a sad tale of t6he tragedy of war, but rather an uplifting testament to the human spirit that challenges every notion of what it means to be disabled.
Admission is $2.00/person for Suffolk Y members, $4.00 for non-members. For more information, please call (631) 462-9800, ext. 126 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
