BETHLEHEM, PA, April 28– Terry Craig embraces the nickname “The Disabled Hiker,” but he doesn’t let his chronic pain dictate what he can accomplish. At Saturday’s premiere of his documentary “A Mile In Our Shoes” at Bethlehem’s Northampton Community College, Craig spoke to attendees about some of the lessons he learned during the two years he spent shooting this full-length film.

Known by many as the “Disabled Hiker,” U.S. Pain Foundation Pain Ambassador Terry Craig has completed a full-length documentary film titled A Mile in Our Shoes, which tells the story of three hikers with chronic health issues making their way through the Delaware state forest.
“I’ve spent nearly two decades teaching myself and others how to enjoy the outdoors through innovation, adaptation, and sense of community,” Craig explains. “This documentary highlights how nature can offer backpackers with varying diseases a type of healing you can only experience in the great outdoors.”
