A documentary film following Spokane’s Brad Thiessen’s recovery from brain cancer will be shown Friday at REI (1125 N. Monroe St.)

In June 2015, two days before he was to enter his first 50K trail run, Thiessen found himself being wheeled into the operating room to have a brain tumor removed, his third cancer experience.

The film follows his physical and emotional recovery and the role running played in it all. The event goes from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
