Join the St James Day celebrations 2017 at CaminoWays.com. This year we are very excited to invite you to a special screening of the recently released Camino documentary, I’ll Push You at our Dublin headquarters.
St James is the patron saint of Santiago de Compostela but also Galicia; which means St James Day is a time for some special celebrations throughout Galicia. Every year pilgrims gather in Santiago de Compostela on 25th July, St James Day.
In 2014 Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray set out on an adventure like no other. We were delighted to support them on their epic Camino de Santiago journey. Justin is required to use a motorised wheelchair following a terrible car accident when he was 16. Now Justin dedicates his life to supporting others and inspiring people with disabilities to keep living their lives to the full. When he came up with the idea to do the 800km full trail of the Camino Frances his life-long friend Patrick agreed to push him.
We were inspired by their will power and determination to embark on this wonderful experience. Justin and Patrick took on all of the physical and mental hardships along the 800km trek to Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain. After a whole month on the trail, they crossed the finish line embracing friends, family and fellow pilgrims who had helped them and were inspired by them along the way. And one day ahead of schedule! We followed their journey and you can read about it here.
Filled with beautifully honest stories composed with equal parts humor and pain, I’ll Push You is an unapologetic exploration of friendship, faith and love.
For an evening of celebration we will have:
- I’ll Push You Screening
- Spanish music
- Tapas and Wine
- Prizes and more…
