Brawny: The Last Mile

The story of Gini Fellows

Brawny paper towels is all about strength and resilience. So when they decided to sponsor their first athlete, it made perfect sense to partner with Gini Smith Fellows. While most slow down in their 70's, Gini decided it was the perfect time to become a competitive triathlete.

This film chronicles the struggle of making through the last mile of a 26 mile endurance race not for the fate of heart of an athlete of any age. As we discover, the strength to go on can come from many places, including pain.

Many thanks to Robbie Weedie, producer, editor and tireless footage wrangler. The film recently won first place at the Redline film festival
