WIN for Southern Illinois has teamed up with WSIU to present a free screening and follow up discussion of the film Strong! by Julie Wyman, May 26 at 2:30 at the Carbondale Public Library. The movie centers on the experiences of Cheryl Haworth a 300-pound U.S. Olympic weightlifter as she prepared for the 2008 Olympics. WIN for Southern Illinois co-founders, Bobbi Knapp and Jen Sewell, and former Saluki athlete Marian Appiah-Kubi will help lead the discussion after the film. We encourage everyone to come out and support this film and join us in an engaging discussion of the issues presented.
