ABOUT THE MOVIE
BLIND COURAGE is an Adventure/Drama based on the true-story of former alcoholic and social outcast, Bill Irwin, and his attempt to hike the 2100 mile Appalachian Trail despite the fact that he was blind. Using his faith in God and the instincts of his guide dog, Bill Irwin, attempted to hike the entire Appalachian trail in a single hiking season, looking back on his life pulling from the lessons he learned while coping with the effects of his blindness to give him the courage he needs to make it to the finish line at Mt. Katahdin in Maine.

About The Real Bill Irwin
In 1990, Bill Irwin, with his Seeing Eye dog Orient, became the first and only blind person to have completed the 2,168 mile Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine without human assistance or companionship. He had no maps, no GPS, no compass back then. Hiking alone with his amazing dog guide Oreint. When people wanted to hike with him he had them hike way in front or behind him because the sound of “oh no” was too stressful, not knowing what they were seeing that he could not see.
