"Chair the Hope" documentary ready for the big screen, tickets selling fast

A Treasure Valley man's wheelchair was taken from him, but that hasn't hampered his giving spirit.

Nathan Ogden's wheelchair was stolen last fall at a Boise State football game ; that chair is still missing. 

It takes a lot to get Ogden and his family down. Ogden has broken his neck not once, but twice.

Last July, he traded he traded his wheelchair for a bike and joined his family on a 1,200 mile bike ride to raise money for wheelchairs for those in need across the world. 

Over spring break, the family hand-delivered the chairs in Mexico. A film crew joined them on the journeys. 

"As we've progressed through this process we've realized that this journey can affect so many other people's lives," Heather Ogden, Nathan's wife, said. "Having a camera crew with us was neat and fun because they're great guys, but we have really realized this movie is going to be able to reach so many people."

The Chair the Hope documentary is making its big screen premiere at the Majestic Cinemas in Meridian Monday, May 14 at 7:00 pm. 

Tickets are $10 and all the money will go to the Ogdens' Chair the Hope nonprofit. 

"If you want to see something that will motivate you, that will help you realize that you can do harder things, that you can dream bigger, that you can do better and you can help more, this is it," Nathan Ogden said.
