After graduating from high school in 2004, Chris Hrabik's life dramatically changed. He was involved in a truck rollover, leaving him with a broken neck. At the age of 18, Chris was paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.
While in the hospital, a motivational speaker talked to him about adapting to a different kind of life as a quadriplegic. Chris wasn't pleased with the kind of lifestyle the speaker talked about. He knew he wanted more in his life, knowing full well that he would probably always be in a wheelchair.
With one good arm and only partial use of the other, it was challenging for Chris to do normal, everyday things. Chris said a few years ago "I've been living with my condition long enough now, that I've learned how to make the most beneficial use of my left hand, which doesn't close."
In October, Hrabik entered his first rally race with his hand driven Subaru Impreza, becoming the first quadriplegic performance stage rally driver in the US. After a summer full of building and testing the car, he finished in 15th place and had no mechanical problems.
Along with rally racing and his metal art business, Chris also mentors and is aspiring to be a motivational speaker. His goal is to inspire others to keep a positive attitude and to impress upon his audience to do the things they love to do, and often.
"Chris is one of those inspirational characters, who just being around will not only lift your spirits, but will put you in a mindset to do something with your life...That's why I want to make this documentary, to show people his life, good and bad; all aspects." Producer/Director, Charley Schoen
Our goal is to document, in any combination, three or more rally races, sky diving, SCUBA diving, skiing, interviews with specialists, and life in general. If there is additional funding we would like to include a segment with others, all over the nation, that have faced adversity and overcame it. We are also considering dream sequences and flashbacks to show what it was like for Chris, post injury. We have a composer ready to score the documentary and musicians who are helping to produce the soundtrack. (The two original songs in the video are by Moodminder)
