  • Ahead of the Paralympics, Facebook and the IPC teamed up to create a film series exploring the impact of sport on those living with disabilities across the globe.

  • The USA-based episode centers Dylan Hronec - an adaptive surfer from New York nicknamed the "Surfing Samurai" - who helps expose others to his sport through the non-profit Surf for All.

  • The four-part series aims to spotlight #WeThe15, a human rights movement seeking to end discrimination against the 15% of the global population living with disabilities.

  • "As someone who has followed the Paralympic movement from a young age, this film was something special to be a part of," Hronec said. "The opportunity to grow awareness about adaptive athletics and showcase it on such a large platform is a blessing."
