Heroes & Horses, a division of Horses of Hope Inc. will be screening the Award Winning Film – Riding My Way Back at the Roxy Theatre on Sunday, February 16 at 4:30PM.
The short documentary chronicles one soldier’s journey back from the brink of suicide. In 2010, Staff Sergeant Aaron Heliker returned from multiple deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). At his most desperate and isolated time, on 42 medications and suicidal, Aaron is introduced to the unlikeliest of saviors – a Horse named Fred. Through caring for Fred, Aaron begins the difficult process of reconnecting to the world around him and healing the invisible wounds of war that nearly defeated him.
Admission is $5.00. Proceeds from this screening benefit the Heroes & Horses Program. For additional information on our Heroes & Horses Program, please contact Vickie Hancock at 570-484-1664.
