Justin Skeesuck Suffers from Neuromuscular Disorder but With Help Of his Best Friend, Patrick Gray, It Wasn’t about to Stop Him From Living His Dream.
One Day, Justin confided in Patrick that he wanted to hike the Camino de Santiago, a trail that usually takes a month to travel on foot. Without Question, Patrick immediately agreed, “Yeah, I’ll Push you,” Patrick replied.
Their Story, sure to inspire others, was so touching and motivating they decided to make it into a documentary film and book, titled “I’ll Push you”. You can find more information about their work by clicking here and visit their website.
Justin and Partick’s strong bond and determination drove the two through a commendable hike that is normally only attempted by professional hikers. You can view the two speak about their close friendship and their journey in the interview video below.

That’s why they decided to share their story with the world in a new book and documentary film, both entitled “I’ll Push You.” They also started Push Inc. to present the film, and they’ve partnered with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), which helps fund neuromuscular disorder and disease research that can lead to more people having experiences like this.
The film will be presented in more than 500 theaters across the country in a special one-night-only release and feature information about MDA and the work the organization does to support families like Justin’s.
That and Push Inc. are part of their post-Camino emphasis on motivating individuals and organizations to strive for what they thought was impossible. For Skeesuck, that starts with asking yourself why you want to get there.
“If your ‘why’ is strong enough that no matter what you face you will continue on, then it’s time to look at the how” Skeesuck writes.
Everyone needs help every now and again. When that time comes, you’ll want to have people you trust at your back, pushing you forward.
