Hailing from Dead Horse Creek Ranch, located just North of Fort St John, to competing in the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020, Bo Hedges always knew he was capable of great achievements. “I believe that anything is possible” – Bo Hedges, 2018.
This is a story as much about Fort St John as it is about Bo. We will show all the ways in which this outstanding player and person was supported by his community resulting in an Paralympic athlete in basketball.
This documentary will show Bo as an extraordinary and influential person within the community, and a top para-athlete as he trains towards his final effort in leading his team as Captain to a gold medal in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games. This is also a story of medical significance not just strength in community and the enduring culture of inclusive sport. Canada can teach the world about wheelchair massage.
What are his hopes and thoughts for his final game? Will he bring home gold?
Is he planning to come back to Northern B.C. and continue to give back to the community? What will happen with Bo Hedges after the final game in Tokyo?
