GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- A film festival in Grand Rapids is hoping to inspire people to protect their brains when they participate in winter sports.
The Ski Film Fest will premiere Sherpas Cinema's "Into the Mind," about extreme downhill skiers at the Wealthy Theater on Saturday January 11th.
Doors open at 7:00 pm. Before the event area ski and snowboarding vendors will promote local gear, ski hills, and helmet safety. One of the sponsors, Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, will be providing a free helmet fitting.
After the movie there will be a prize raffle.
Proceeds from the tickets and the raffle will go toward Summer Journeys' scholarship fund for outdoor experiential programming in the Tetons for Grand Rapids youth.
