'CONQUERING KILIMANJARO' FLORIDA PREMIERE!


Last week, we hosted a special red carpet film premiere as we celebrated the Florida premiere of Conquering Kilimanjaro and a Stand Up for Wendy Chioji celebration. Our inspirational friend and colleague Wendy is a breast cancer survivor and was recently diagnosed with recurrent Thymic Carcinoma. Wendy was in attendance and shared her inspirational story with the audience.

A former Central Florida news anchor, Wendy was part of Survivor Summit 2014, the expedition team chronicled in Conquering Kilimanjaro, the documentary film by Growing Bolder Founder and CEO Marc Middleton. The film celebrates the power of love and the irrepressible nature of the human spirit documenting the life-changing and life-challenging efforts to climb Tanzania's Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world's highest freestanding mountain at 19,341 feet.

The climb was led by world famous high altitude mountaineer, Chris Warner and in addition to Chioji and Middleton, included LIVESTRONG CEO Doug Ulman, world-renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Robert Masson and other survivors and advocates from the cancer community.

We've posted an album of photos from the big night. If you were there, find and tag yourself! In the coming weeks, we'll be sharing a complete wrap-up about the night and stay tuned for for BIG NEWS on plans to bring this film to festivals, theaters and TV stations in a city near you!
