Storyline

GO FAR: The Christopher Rush Story chronicles the inspirational life of Christopher Rush, a paraplegic, and national MDA poster child, who lived with muscular dystrophy from birth to death at the age 30, well beyond his predicted two years of life. Chris achieved extraordinary goals despite impossible odds and left behind a philosophy of life for all of us to follow. GO FAR is a motivational film that will teach and inspire not only persons with disabilities, but everyone, to follow their dreams and achieve them, no matter the obstacles. Featuring Tony Orlando, Jerry Lewis, and other celebrities associated with the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Written by Tracy Balsz

wonderful tribute, positive message
14 October 2014 | by tsdmyers28-545-617320See all my reviews

A wonderful tribute to a young man who exuded positivity and love of life, undaunted by physical challenges. It sounds as though one couldn't help but like Christopher Rush. He had a smile, a sense of humor, and an ease about him that would win people over. His parents also struck me as remarkable supporters of their son. I have a feeling that Chris could be quite persuasive, and they believed in him and helped him do whatever he set his mind to.

This film is a good reminder that we need not be limited by our weaknesses, but can draw on our strength to "go far", for we all have gifts to share. They may sound like platitudes, but people like Chris uphold these principles beautifully. People like Chris inspire us to believe.
