Walk Walk Walk: The Story of Stand Proud

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, hundreds of young polio victims with malformed legs, unable to walk upright, are destined not only to crawl or be carried but are often shunned by their own families. “Walk Walk Walk,” a new short documentary by Ken Kobre (“Deadline Every Second”) showcases the revolutionary work of Dr. Jay Nash and his non-profit organization Stand Proud, which provides free plaster casts, braces, crutches, physical therapy, and medical assistance to a generation of formerly crippled kids. In emotionally wrenching interviews and scenes, we witness the transformation of determined teens who can now not only stand tall and walk proud for the first time but also gleefully dance and enthusiastically participate in athletic endeavors that once seemed impossibly beyond their dreams.
