    Inspirational speakers and stars from the upcoming movie “I’ll Push You” will highlight this year’s Community Prayer Luncheon hosted by the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce on Thurs., May 4, at 11:30 a.m., at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
     
    The Chamber is excited to bring you two phenomenal speakers in Patrick Gray and Justin Skeesuck, best friends who completed the 500-mile pilgrimage called Camino de Santiago. This was not your ordinary pilgrimage as Skeesuck lives life in a wheelchair due to a progressive neuromuscular disease. Over the past 20-plus years, the disease has slowly taken away Skeesuck’s ability to use his arms and legs.
     
    In the spring of 2012, Skeesuck learned about the Camino de Santiago and asked his lifelong friend, Gray, what he thought about tackling the ancient pilgrimage. Gray’s response was “I’ll push you.” Two years later, they started their 34-day journey. The two have a film being made about their friendship and journey, which is scheduled to be released in early fall of 2017.
     
    Musical entertainment will be provided by Kenzie Walker and the High Point Village Handbell Choir.
     
    The luncheon serving line will begin at 11:30 a.m., with the program beginning promptly at 12 p.m.
     
    Tickets for the luncheon are $50. Chamber members get a discounted price of $35. Reservations are required by 5 p.m. on Mon., May 1. Register at LubbockChamber.com or by calling the Chamber at (806) 761-7000.Inspirational speakers and stars from the upcoming movie “I’ll Push You” will highlight this year’s Community Prayer Luncheon hosted by the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce on Thurs., May 4, at 11:30 a.m., at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
