A Walk for Sunshine Movie Premieres in Asheville

The A Walk for Sunshine / Appalachian Trail Show movie premieres in Asheville next Tuesday, July 20, at the Fine Arts Theatre.

In this documentary of engaging tales and stunning photography, author, adventurer and story teller Jeff Alt takes you with him on his 2,000 mile hike along the Appalachian Trail.

Alt shares humorous and hair raising animal encounters of sleeping with a skunk, being charged by a bear, chased by a bull, wild ponies, moose, mice, and his hilarious food cravings, all for a noble cause.

Alt's brother, Aaron, lives at the Sunshine Children's Home; a home for people with developmental disabilities. Alt's adventure inspired an annual Walk-With-Sunshine event which has raised over $180,000 for Sunshine. The movie is based on Alt's award-winning book, A Walk for Sunshine.

The Fine Arts Theatre is located at 36 Biltmore Avenue in Asheville. For more information on viewing the movie, please click here.
