The Fit Generation – Whistler Premiere

The Fit Generation is an inspiring documentary about amazing people in their 70’s and 80’s in British Columbia who choose to live a healthy, active life despite all the challenges that come with aging. They face cancer, arthritis, heart attacks, bone fractures, knee replacements, fatigue and the loss of loved ones, but they won’t give up or stop having fun!

Two Whistler locals, Marcel Richoz and George Tjelios-Nicholas, star with four others in the film, showing us how to live life to the fullest – including dancing, biking, skiing and playing hockey. Join us in The Gallery after the film to meet the stars!
