Endless Abilities: The Power of Persistence

In the spring of 2012, four best friends drove from Rhode Island across the country in search of adaptive sports for individuals with physical disabilities, and lived to tell the story in a feature documentary film.

From rehabilitation patients to Paralympic athletes, their cameras captured the reality of broken boundaries and common goals among all who are active. They went rock climbing with the blind, played soccer with quadriplegics, and swam with those with muscular dystrophy.

Through their journey, they learned that sports really are the great equalizer, unifying people of all abilities on a level playing field.

Rhode Island PBS is pleased to present the television debut of Endless Abilities on Thursday, August 7 at 9:30 p.m. Be sure to tune in and watch the remarkable story of their adventure to build understanding, bridge worlds, and change lives.
