Tara Llanes: Creating A New Film

This film is about my life as a mountain biker, a champion, a friend, a daughter, and a paraplegic. I hate that last word…but it’s the truth, and this is my life at this very moment.

This will not be my life forever though…I will walk again! This film not only chronicles my issues throughout this journey, but also other athletes who have been affected by spinal cord injuries. Our mission is to show you what our lives were like before our accidents, what we deal with on a daily basis, and what we do to try and make it out the other side. Most importantly though, it gives you all an understanding of what you can do to protect yourselves and what you can do to help! We need your support to raise both money and awareness of SCI’s in hopes that we too will get to ride again! A lot has happened to each one of us since the day of our fateful accidents. So much that you probably wouldn’t believe me if I told you…so…I guess we’ll just have to show you!
