GO FAR: The Christopher Rush Story chronicles the inspirational life of Christopher Rush, a paraplegic, and national MDA poster child, who lived with muscular dystrophy from birth to death at the age 30, well beyond his predicted two years of life. Chris achieved extraordinary goals despite impossible odds and left behind a philosophy of life for all of us to follow. GO FAR is a motivational film that will teach and inspire not only persons with disabilities, but everyone, to follow their dreams and achieve them, no matter the obstacles. Featuring Tony Orlando, Jerry Lewis, and other celebrities associated with the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
At the age of seven months, Christopher Rush was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, and his parents were told he would be 'no more than a dishrag, and dead by two.' Christopher lived to 30, and in that time he achieved more than most able-bodied people do in a lifetime, including becoming the first quadriplegic licensed as a scuba diver. Shortly before his death, Chris developed a motivational program called GO FAR. This film is his life story and a continuation of his work; it will inspire not only those with disabilities, but everyone, to follow their dreams, no matter the obstacles. (The film is narrated by Mark Hamill)
