WE'VE BEEN NOMINATED FOR 2 EMMY AWARDS!


We're thrilled to announce Growing Bolder has been nominated for two EMMY® Awards, honoring our special series Surviving & Thriving® and our first documentary Conquering Kilimanjaro.

This is the third straight nomination for Surviving & Thriving®, which is produced by Growing Bolder in partnership with Florida Hospital. Hosted by two-time cancer survivor Wendy Chioji, it features the powerful and inspirational stories of people who’ve battled back and overcome life’s most-challenging setbacks.

The documentary Conquering Kilimanjaro tells the extraordinary true story of a group of 16 cancer survivors and advocates who climbed to the 19,341-foot frozen summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest freestanding mountain, to send a message of love and hope to the world’s 32 million cancer survivors. Growing Bolder Founder and CEO Marc Middleton not only climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro with the expedition team, he shot most of the footage, then produced, wrote, directed and narrated the film upon his return.

“Creating work we believe in and that we know helps and inspires others is its own reward. That said, it's nice when that work is recognized by our peers,” Middleton says. “Both Surviving & Thriving® and Conquering Kilimanjaro stand as testaments to the power of the human spirit to overcome the seemingly insurmountable. We’re proud to share these stories to help others in need of hope and inspiration.
