A campus kickoff event for the filming of 1,000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story will take place Oct. 1 at noon in Bream Gymnasium.
The pep rally-style event will feature Weissman, the movie’s producers, and a special surprise guest from Hollywood. Attendees will have the chance to learn more about the movie’s cast, the filming that will take place on campus during October, and Weissman’s story.
Everyone in attendance will be entered to win an autographed prize. Those in the crowd will also have a chance to receive 1,000 to 1 favors and merchandise.
1,000 to 1 tells the inspirational story of Cory Weissman, a Gettysburg College basketball player who suffered a stroke during his first year on campus only to return to the court for one extraordinary moment during his senior year. Shooting for the movie will begin on campus in October. The film is a production of Gettysburg Great Productions, LLC, a subsidiary of Gettysburg College.

Alumni include Rhodes Scholars, a Nobel laureate, and other distinguished scholars. The college enrolls 2,600 undergraduate students and is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
