"THE BRAVE MAY NOT LIVE FOREVER BUT THE CAUTIOUS DO NOT LIVE AT ALL”
Today it’s holidays in Barcelona, so I have spent a part of my morning watching a great documentary about the snowboarder KEVIN PEARCE called “The Crash Reel” where he shares his injury & recovery.
In 2009, Kevin Pearce was snowboarding’s rising star, until a devastating training accident left him with a serious brain injury.
This documentary shows from all points of views this devastating accident. The struggle of the family to go through such a hard times when they almost lost their son and brother.. and then when they saw Kevin wanted to go back to snow sports. Kevin even hide to his family that he was competing again.
I really recommend this story of recovery & fight. Also after his accident, Kevin founded LOVE YOUR BRAIN. LOVEYOURBRAIN is the outreach campaign born from The Crash Reel and Kevin Pearce’s inspiring story. The campaign includes a variety of different initiatives, including infographics on what to do if you hit your head, discounts for snowboarders and skiers who wear a helmet at participating mountain resorts, insurance information for athletes, a resource guide to help those with TBI, a share-your-story forum, a helmet pledge, giving the film for free to veterans with TBIs… and much more.
So if you have time, check out this inspiring documentary:
