-Thursday, October 23, 7:00PM, RMS Auditorium: RMS will host a community screening of "One Revolution." One Revolution is the name of the documentary which captures Waddell's journey to the summit of Kilimanjaro using his handcycle. "The documentary is an important part of my climb, as my story is a visual one. People need to see to understand," explains Waddell. One Revolution is Chris Waddell's motto for this expedition, and his life. "One revolution means so many things to me. One revolution of the handcycle, one revolution of the earth, one lifetime, one moment, one chance to make a difference." Donations taken at door to cover cost of screening.

 -Friday, October 24th, 8:10AM, RMS Gym: Chris Waddell will be bringing his "Nametags" presentation to the students and staff at the Richmond Middle School.  Chris Waddell is a multi gold medal Paralympic skier.  He became a paraplegic after a ski injury during college.  Chris travels around the world speaking with groups about overcoming obstacles in your life.  For more information on either event please contact John Lacrosse.
