Kyle Bryant: The Ataxian

Join Main Point Books for a screening and book signing at Bryn Mawr Film Institute

Suffering from the neuromuscular disorder Friedreich's Ataxia, Kyle Bryant loses his ability to walk, but not his hope. Instead, Bryant and three friends undertake a grueling coast-to-coast bike race to raise awareness and spread inspiration. Join us after this documentary for a panel discussion featuring Kyle BryantJen Farmer and Felicia DeRosa of the Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance, and Angela Cressor of Roberts Elementary, where Bryant's story has been used to teach students about activism and determination.
