My Run


Indiewood Pictures in Association with Destiny Pictures presents MY RUN, the inspirational documentary of Terry Hitchcock, narrated by Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton.

After tragically losing his wife to breast cancer and struggling to raise three young children on his own, Terry Hitchcock seized on an idea. He wanted to accomplish the impossible: run 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days to bring attention to the incredibly difficult lives of single-parent families.

Dove Review

Here is an astonishing documentary about one man’s journey to bring attention to the world about being a single parent. Terry Hitchcock, like so many others, believed that he and his wife would raise their three lovely children together and they would grow old together. Unfortunately Terry’s life changed when they received news that his loving wife, Sue, had breast cancer.

When the disease takes Sue, Terry becomes a single parent, raising their children and he faces the challenges that situation entails. But along with the loss of his wife he also loses his job which sends him in a different direction. Terry is angry with God and going in a down-hill direction until he realizes that he needs to be a voice for others like himself. So a plan is put into place for him to run a marathon like none ever done before.

This is an inspiring story of Terry’s run from St. Paul to Atlanta in 75 days. Witness the ups and downs of running a marathon of this endeavor, the physical and mental challenges along the way, plus the emotional conflicts that arise in Terry and the team around him. It’s truly a story of endurance and faith. Dove is proud to award “My Run” the Dove Seal.
