Far From Home film, the story of Brolin Mawejje by friends Galen Knowles and Phil Hessler, is available for download on Vimeo. Brolin was born in impoverished circumstances in Kampala, Uganda and is now on track to become the first snowboarder to ever represent an African country in the Winter Olympics, while simultaneously applying to medical school. Yesterday, Uganda was inducted into the 2018 Winter Olympics, allowing Brolin to become the first African to snowboard in the Olympics.
If 600 people download Far From Home in the next week, Vimeo will contribute $10,000 towards Brolin’s Olympic training. Please join me in helping Brolin achieve his Olympic dream by downloading Far From Home. Click below.
Please share this and help Brolin get to the 2018 Olympics representing Africa and Jackson Hole.
To help Brolin get that $10,000 from Vimeo, I’m going to donate a day of snowboarding (or skiing, conditions dependent) and storytelling to one lucky winner this winter. I’ll provide the lift ticket to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Snow King or Grand Targhee (your choice). To enter, forward me your Far From Home purchase confirmation email from Vimeo to email@example.com. Next Friday morning I will randomly choose a winner and notify you directly and on my Facebook page. Please share this and together let’s help send Brolin to the Olympics!
