No doubt over the past few years you have heard about the incredible story of Luther College graduate Chris Norton '14. After a life-altering tackle on the Luther College football field, he was told he would never move again. Through grit and faith, he overcame the odds and walked across the stage at commencement. That same weekend, Chris would propose to the love of his life, Emily Summers. The next goal would be to walk arm in arm with his bride at their wedding. A journey of seven yards down the aisle.

Chris and Emily’s remarkable story has been captured in a feature documentary film. We have the wonderful opportunity of being the first to see the film - 7 Yards, The Chris Norton Story. On Tuesday, April 28th, Luther College alumni, parents, and friends will have exclusive access to the screening. The event will take place at the historic Arcada Theatre in downtown St. Charles, Illinois (105 East Main Street). Tickets in a dedicated Luther College section can be purchased for $40. Before the show, a dinner and reception for alumni and friends will take place at Riverside Pizza (102 East Main Street) directly across from the Theatre. Pizza, salad, and soft drinks will be provided by hosts Dan '97 and Stephanie Tresemer.

Please join us for what is sure to be a memorable and inspiring evening. The Luther College reception and seating are limited to the first 100 tickets. Tickets can be purchased using this link.
