Nico's Challenge

Film Screening — Duration: 15 mins

Nico Calabria was born with only one leg, but his disability does not define him. As he says, “Even though I have one leg, I can still do what anyone else can.” In this short documentary, he takes on the highest peak in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro with his father Carl, and shares his success with those less fortunate than him. This is not a story of overcoming adversity or of unknown challenges faced and met. It is a story about one remarkable 13-year-old boy who knows who he is and what he’s capable of doing—both for himself and others—and he changes the world, or at least one little corner of it.
