About Chaeli

A story about not being sorry. About living your life your way. Saying yes when everyone thinks it should automatically be no. And about the lighter moments on a journey that challenges everything you thought you knew about living with disability.

Chaeli Mycroft, born in 1994 with cerebral palsy, was born to prove people wrong. To dismantle assumptions and refuse to accept limitations. She’s summitted Mount Kilimanjaro and made history by being the first wheelchair athlete to complete the Comrades Marathon, a gruelling 89 kilometre Ultra-Marathon. Chaeli won the International Children’s Peace Prize in 2011 for her role in ability activism.

Her awards are numerous and her accomplishments many. Now, in this intimate portrayal of a life already well lived, Chaeli takes us along on the journey and shows us what it takes to really, truly believe in your self.
