synopsis
The 48 highest peaks in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, also known as the '4000 footers' cover over 250 miles of various terrain and over 70,000 feet of elevation. Four hikers, including the filmmaker, set out to summit all 48 in a single trip on foot, two completed the journey and reached the 48th summit in 24 days to raise awareness and funding for ALS patients and their families. HARK's Hope on the Horizon Documentary is the first step in 'Changing the way the world views ALS' and ensuring that the world knows what the disease is and how devastating it is to families that are affected by it. As we navigated our way through ALS we realized the severe lack of awareness that existed about this disease outside of the ALS community.Hope on the Horizon is not just about ALS, it's about facing life's challenges with courage and overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds every day. The documentary will bring viewers a firsthand view of two sets of challenges simultaneously. The challenges of negotiating the fragile beauty and rugged terrain of the White Mountains serves and the true challenges and hardships faced by ALS victims and their loved ones in dealing with this devastating disease.
