Dan Cummings’s journey continues

Advertisement

Dan Cummings was 19 years old when he was paralyzed in a diving accident. Ten years later, he taught himself to walk again and founded Journey Forward, a Canton-based nonprofit aimed at improving, through intensive exercise, the lives of those who have suffered a spinal cord injury. On Tuesday night, a Vegas Casino Night at Kings Dedham will benefit the program. It will be hosted by Christopher Knight, who played Peter Brady on “The Brady Bunch” and more recently starred on the reality show “My Fair Brady.” Professional casino dealers will be on hand, as well as food and a silent auction. On Wednesday night, the documentary “Mile of Hope: The Dan Cummings Story” will have its New England premiere to benefit Journey Forward. Director-writer David
Fresina
will discuss the filming of Cummings’s journey from wheelchair to walking. The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m. at Showcase Cinema de Lux at Legacy Place in Dedham. “These nights are a dream come true,” Cummings says. “I am overwhelmed by the generous financial and emotional support from the arts, media, and sports communities for those living with
spinal-cord injuries.”
