Some insightful background from filmmaker Claire Imler: “This film was made throughout the course of one year, my mom introduced us and then I found her story so inspiring so I decided to make a film about it. I followed Jackie’s story through all these different steps she had to take in order to be able to complete her first triathlon. I was there at her very first swim lesson, then a couple months later I was there to film her swimming in the bay during the triathlon. Jackie does all of this to raise money for the Leukemia society. She is one of the most dedicated, passionate, and hardworking person I know! She inspires many with her incredible story and I am lucky to have been able to share this experience with her! This short documentary has been nominated at several festivals, and the next upcoming screenings will be at the Newport Beach Film Festival on April 23rd,  and SoCal Student Film Festival on April 30th.”

Jackie is filled with incredible stories, she could go on talking for hours! Currently she is 82 years old, working full time at a new job, and she trains a lot to continue running to raise awareness for the Leukemia society. Her goal is to be able to go to Africa to hike Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money.
Claire is a junior in high school, and I am part of the film program at school. She fell in love with film when she joined the class, and now it’s really what she wants to do in my future. She feels lucky to have such supportive friends and family who help her create projects and films! She is super excited that she was nominated in several film festivals this year and hopes to be able to continue doing this in the future! “
