  Running the Sahara (2/18)

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

NEHST Studios is hosting a special premiere screening of the film “Running the Sahara” (www.runningthesahara.com) in Cleveland (& Canton on March 13th). “Running the Sahara” is a documentary narrated and produced by Oscar winner Matt Damon, directed by Oscar winner James Moll, and featuring music by Grammy winner Wyclef Jean (I love the music on the website!). the film follows three ultra-marathoners on their 111-day, 4,300-mile attempt to run across Africa’s Sahara Desert.

“Running the Sahara” focuses on three runners: Charlie Engle from Charlotte, North Carolina, Kevin Lin from Taipei, Taiwan, and Ray Zahab from Ontario, Canada – accompanied by a support team consisting of an MD, a physical therapist, and a logistics leader – as they attempt to become the first people to ever run across the Sahara Desert. This character-driven film delves into the life-changing experiences of the three runners as they tackle the physical and emotional obstacles in the Sahara Desert. The film delivers a message of hope and puts everyday challenges in perspective.

7pm : Tower City Cinemas. $35 per person (includes admission to the film, a gift bag valued at over $50, a cocktail reception and Q&A with star of the film, ultra-marathoner Charlie Engle.) A portion of proceeds will benefit the Rodale Institute and Team In Training. For tickets visit www.nehst.com
