BASKING RIDGE, NJ - The Hope on the Horizon documentary will be screened at the Ridge High School Performing Arts Center on Thursday. The showing is being presented by Hark, a non-profit formed in memory of Charlie “Hark” Dourney after he lost his battle with ALS. The documentary will take place at 7 p.m. and tickets are a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children.
The documentary is based on four hikers, including the filmmaker, who hiked 48 of the highest peaks in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. They covered over 250 miles and 70,000 feet in elevation. Two of the four completed the trek in 24 days.
According to the organizers of the foundation, “HARK is an active ALS charity organization that was founded by Donna Dourney York in memory of her father, Charles W. Dourney, a lifelong athlete, coach, and father of seven, who courageously battled ALS until his death in November 2009, and who was affectionately known as ‘Hark’ by his wife Ann.”
All proceeds will provide assistance to ALS patients and their families.
