Go On, Be Brave

Don’t miss a screening of the inspiring and vital new documentary, Go On, Be Brave, followed by a conversation and Q&A with the film’s subjects, Andrea Lytle Peet and David Peet.

Go On, Be Brave is the story of one woman’s race against time and an attempt at the impossible: to be the first person with ALS to complete a marathon in all 50 states. The film begins with Andrea Lytle Peet’s life-altering ALS diagnosis at the age of 33. Her disease was rapidly progressing but like a true athlete, she decided to do one final race – which changed everything. She realized she could inspire people with her story and challenged friends and family to “go on and be brave.” Then she waited, assuming she would die soon. The life expectancy of ALS is two to five years.

At the five-year anniversary of her ALS diagnosis, Andrea set an ambitious goal: to become the first person with ALS to complete a marathon in all 50 US states. An “attempt at the impossible,” shares her neurologist Dr. Bedlack; a goal even Andrea doesn’t think she will reach. But she wants to try.

What starts as one woman’s quest toward 50 marathons evolves into a story of community, hope, and asks us all to consider the question, “what does it mean to truly live?”
