The Journey Continues
I've known David Dame since I was 15 years old. I met Dave when I was a councillor at Woodeden Easter Seals camp. I consider Dave a close friend, and a brother. Dave is somebody who I admire for pushing through the boundaries and not allowing anything to get in his way.
Last September, Dave walked 5k to and raised over $30,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation. This was a journey 18 months in the making. I was honoured to be able to capture this incredible moment on camera.
This 40 minute documentary is a look into David's life as he experiences his astonishing journey to walk 5 Kilometres.
"I was scared. At times I had self doubt. It was going to hurt. It was going to be a challenge. Cerebral Palsy was not going to stop me. Life is hard, but it's worth it.
This is the Documentary about my journey...not only to walk 5km...but my Journey through life. This touches on all aspects of my life to the big day. Growing up, finding 'The One' in my soul mate Kelly, my career side, and who I am as a person. My friend/brother - Edward Platero could not have told this story any better. I like to pride myself as someone who does not shed a tear...but I shed a few while watching this. I love my wife, friends, and my life. Thank you everyone.
My life has changed a lot in the last year...and it will continue to change...because The Journey Continues." - Dave Dame
