Every year, Tahoe's Connection for Families tries to give the community a unique experience to say "Thanks for supporting us!"


Since COVID-19 is preventing in-person gatherings, we are instead offering an opportunity to stream the inspiring documentary "Crossing Bhutan" and meet via Zoom with three of the film's creators.

Please register ahead of time, and we will provide a voucher to view the movie for free. You can then meet us on Zoom for an inspiring chat!

About the Film

Drawn by the allure of the Himalayan Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan, four veteran athletes attempt an unprecedented human-powered, border-to-border crossing, hoping to experience Bhutan’s unique policy of Gross National Happiness first hand.

When the demands of the grueling 42-day, 485-mile journey push the team beyond their breaking point, they must confront the challenge inherent in walking what Buddhist’s call the Middle Path - embracing the benefits of our fast-paced modern life while still honoring the ancient traditions and values that makes Bhutan so unique.
