"Warrior Champions from Baghdad to Beijing" Chicago Film Screening

March 12, 2010

Please mark your calendar today for the Chicago screening of "Warrior Champions from Baghdad to Beijing". This incredible Renaud brothers film chronicles the journey of four American service members who are injured in Baghdad and their quest to participate in the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games. One of the profiled athletes, Melissa Stockwell, currently lives in Chicago.

KrankcycleRx is helping to provide support to wounded warriors who have served and fought for us all.

Two Krankcycles have been donated to the TRACK center in Jacksonville, FL by KrankcycleRx.

The equipment will help those participating in the program with a new and great way to stay fit. The Johnny G KrankcycleR by Matrix is fully wheelchair accessible, and since it utilizes the upper body instead of the legs, it provides a unique opportunity for people with physical disabilities to train along with everyone else or independently.
