NEWTOWN, Conn. -(Ammoland.com)- Craig DeMartino, Author, Amputee, Host of Outdoor Channel's “Fight to Survive,” to Hold Availability and Book Signing at SHOT Show 2015.
Nationally-recognized climber Craig DeMartino lost his leg after a 100-foot, near-fatal fall during a rock climbing accident in 2002. But that didn't stop him from pursuing his passion for the outdoors. In 2006 he became the first amputee to free climb the nearly 10,000 ft. face of Yosemite's El Capitan in a single day. Now Craig hosts FIGHT TO SURVIVE, journeying to meet other survivors and hear their stories.
Each week Craig takes a survivor back to the flashpoint of their ordeal as they share with him their very own fight to survive.
Media availability and book signing featuring Craig and his book – After the Fall: A Climber's True Story of Facing Death and Finding Life.
When: Wednesday, January 21, 2015
NSSF SHOT SHOW
Project ChildSafe Booth – Booth #L350
(Third Floor, near the Media room)
Craig's story is about much more than his physical recovery; it's a story of how even hope can come with strings attached, and a story of how sometimes the greatest gift isn't just healing, but the power to endure.
