Re-Inventing The Wheel Movie
Joining together, a vibrant community of wheelies guide a newly injured rookie into his new life in a wheelchair.
The Power of Peer Support
Praxis is proud to support the new feature documentary, “Re-Inventing The Wheel,” produced and directed by Chelsea McEvoy. Opening summer 2021, “Re-Inventing The Wheel” features Praxis’ own James Hektner, Regional Community Liaison BC Interior, who is also Chelsea McEvoy’s partner. This film shows a unique community of wheelchair-users guide newly injured Dan McLean and his wife Colleen through Dan’s first year of life as a paraplegic. A 60-minute roller coaster of emotion, this film documents all aspects of spinal cord injury and, most importantly, the power of peer support.
Shedding a light on a vibrant community, “Re-Inventing The Wheel” documents the lives of active wheelchair users living in Kelowna, BC. From sailing to golfing, camping to biking, there isn’t anything this group can’t do. This is not your average peer support group and this is not your average ‘inspirational’ story you’d see in the news. People from all ‘walks’ of life and diverse abilities travel to the valley to get a little taste of this unique Okanagan Lifestyle. Follow along as this tribe of wheelies band together and aid newly injured Dan McLean and his wife Colleen into Dan’s new life on wheels. They challenge him, support him and, most importantly, guide him through struggles and triumphs.
