Current Documentary Project: twenty years of Swollfest Fishing Rodeo
Every year at Swollfest Fishing Rodeo in Grand Isle, Louisiana one individual is surprised with an "outdoor wish." Rachel was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at eighteen months old. Despite her debilitating disease, she has maintained a positive outlook on life, always searching for the best in every situation and bringing smiles to all those she meets. At the 2015 Swollfest Fishing Rodeo, Rachel was surprised with the trip of a lifetime from the Outdoor Wish Foundation: a three day hunting trip to Recordbuck Ranch in Utopia,Texas. The foundation also gifted Rachel an action trackchair to assist her in navigating the outdoors while on the trip and on all of her future adventures. “Outdoor Wish: Rachel" follows this inspiring young woman on a journey from her daily life to the expansive land of Recordbuck Ranch where she overcomes the restraints of her disease to conquer the wild outdoors.
Swollfest Fishing Rodeo is a non-profit organization started in 1997 that works year-round to raise funds for American Diabetes Association, Muscular Dystrophy Association, as well as other organizations. Swollfest has extensive community involvement with hundreds of sponsors and many more participants providing the foundation for one of the top philanthropies in our area. In conjunction with Swollfest, Outdoor Wish Foundation was founded in 2008 as a non-profit organization and operates to improve the quality of life for children and veterans with disabilities by offering an opportunity of a lifetime with hunting and/or fishing adventures. The main goal of both organizations is to involve the community in awareness of the special needs of others along with raising funds to improving quality of life for those affected, optimistic that one day we will find a cure.
