First & Only Blind Person To Hike The Appalachian Trail Alone
Bill lost his fight to prostate cancer on Saturday, March 1, 2014.
He was amazing man. For those of you who knew my husband, he was a loving, strong, faithful, giving and compassionate man. He reached out to so many throughout his lifetime across the country to lend a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on, for words of wisdom. He believed in everyone and gave everyone a second chance. He will be sorely missed by all. He will be forever in our hearts.
INTERVIEW WITH FRED HUGES ON CAVATIATIONS AND WHAT TOOK BILL'S LIFE.
This video shows behind the scenes footage from the production of the concept trailer for Blind Courage (the movie). Interviews by Clint Ross (Director), Bill Oberst, Jr. (Actor), Lukas Franck (The Seeing Eye), and Debra Irwin (Bill's widow) share their thoughts about Bill Irwin and his journey thru-hiking 2100 miles on the Appalachian Trail.
Bill helped people in so many aspects of life. He brought passion, fresh perspective and encouragement. He taught people how to make progress toward achieving the success they desired. He will helped clarify purpose and give you the fuel to achieve that success!
The way our culture is today, many people are weary from the day to day demands of work, family and life. All this can be exhausting and very frustrating. Despite the circumstances and pressures we all face, it doesn't have to be that way. Many who attend a function where Bill Irwin helped people discover a renewed energy and commitment to face the obstacles of life differently; they would know that their life had been changed forever.
