Portland, OR and Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
Performance Mobility, a premier provider of wheelchair vans and mobility products, is hosting a concert by Nashville recording artist Michelle Murray at their Portland West location on August 9th, 9 am to Noon and Portland East store, August 10th from 9 am to Noon. Michelle will then travel to Colorado to visit the Colorado Springs store on August 13th from 2 pm to 5 pm and the Wheat Ridge location on August 15th from 2 pm to 5 pm.
The concert is part of the “My Finish Line” music and movie tour, which shares the story of Sam Schmidt, an INDYCAR driver who was paralyzed in a crash on the track in 2000. Much of the film takes place on the racetrack, where Sam continues to live his passion for the sport of INDYCAR racing despite suffering a crash that left him paralyzed. In the years since his accident, Sam has not slowed down and continues to approach life with more energy than ever.
Michelle Murray was so inspired by Sam when she met him that she wrote a song called “It Won’t Be If, But When” about Sam and his inspirational spirit. She has since become a spokeswoman for the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation, which exists to find a cure for paralysis.
The “My Finish Line” tour, sponsored in part by BraunAbility, will reach 50 states and over 120 cities, much of it matching the 2013 IZOD INDYCAR racing schedule. The movie will premiere at 17 locations, and will be promoted during 14 INDYCAR race weekends. Michelle will be making over 60 live music performances along the way as well.
During each performance at Performance Mobility, Michelle will perform a 20-minute music set and will hold a meet and greet with attendees, who can also get information about the Supporter program and also purchase copies of Michelle’s CD and the film, “My Finish Line”.
The performance and movie will offer encouragement and inspiration to persons with disabilities – especially those dealing with the challenges of a life-altering injury or illness.
