Wednesday, September 30, North Country CMH hosted a virtual presentation of “Do It For Daniel”
Do It For Daniel is a film that documents Daniel Olson’s story. Daniel was an all-state quarterback for the Ishpeming (Michigan) football team, had a great family and great friends, and just one month shy of turning 20, he lost his lifelong battle with depression and anxiety. The documentary tells the incredible story of Daniel and his family and how the community of Ishpeming, through the Hematites football team, rallied to restore hope for all who suffer from this medical illness called depression.
The documentary is 75 minutes long and is narrated by Daniel’s sister, Jaime Olson. Jeff Olson, father of Daniel and the Head Coach of the Ishpeming Hematites football team provided an introduction and was on hand for a discussion after the movie.
