The Forge: Lemont Quarries
1001 Main Street
Lemont, IL 60439
Families can see a special screening of Kyle Maynard’s ESPN documentary, “A Fighting Chance” at The Mount at The Forge. Following the movie, guests can interact during a Q&A session with Maynard.
The documentary follows Maynard who was born with a rare condition known as congenital amputation, which left him with arms that end at the elbows and legs that end near his knees, as he works towards his goal to compete in a mixed-martial-arts match. Maynard is a New York Times best-selling author, award-winning extreme athlete, owner of No Excuses CrossFit Gym, and the first man to bear crawl to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and summit Mount Aconcagua.
