STILL RUNNING – Pieter du Preez Short Film

Published: April 23, 2014  |  Source:  | Spinal Cord Injury:

‘Still/Running’ vividly chronicles how Wings for Life World Run ambassador Pieter du Preez overcame a tragic cycling accident – which left him paralysed from the chest down – to become the first ever C6 quadriplegic to complete an Iron Man triathlon. It recounts this exceptional sportsman’s battle with the kind of spinal cord injury that the Wings For Life foundation is aiming to cure. We witness the determination that enables Pieter to juggle a grueling training regime, a white-collar career, and the fully independent life he shares with his wife Illse, to record-breaking effect.

A truly inspirational film about the human spirit triumphing in extreme adversity.

Directed by Wayne de Lange and Sven Harding for Silver Bullet Productions / Wings for Life World Run
