Has PR become a profession of talkers. Maybe it's time to adapt our skill set and become makers. 

What do you think?

Image skating around an oval track at high speeds, now image doing it without you sight or your hearing... That is Kevin Frost's life in a nutshell. But you can learn more. Mayfair Theatre is showing a premier of a documentary called Blind Ambition, a story that follows Kevin on his journey. 

All ticket proceeds will go to help Kevin and other visually impaired speed skaters. 

Ladies and gentlemen get your popcorn ready!

On October 18, 2012, local filmmakers premiere the story of an Ottawa athlete that surpassed all odds to become the number one blind speed skater on short and long track in the world. Kevin Frost, a local deaf-blind athlete, invites you to join him at the Orleans Mayfair Theatre where Algonquin College alumnus, Pat Decelles, showcases Blind Ambition, the life of Kevin, a struggling athlete trying to make a difference in the world of Paralympic speed skating.

For the price of a regular movie, you will be taking part in a movement that will further help speed skating get one step closer to becoming a sanctioned Paralympic sport. You will be helping Kevin and other visually impaired and blind athletes across Canada fulfil their dreams of going to the Paralympics for speed skating.
