Broadcast to More than 500 Select Movie Theaters

Los Angeles – March 22, 2011 – Indiewood Pictures, Destiny Pictures and  NCM Fathom presents the family friendly award-winning and critically-acclaimed documentary MY RUN in more than 500 movie theaters nationwide for an exclusive one-night event on Thursday, March 31 at 7:00 p.m. Narrated by Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton, MY RUN is the inspirational story of Terry Hitchcock, the 57-year-old widower and father who ran from his home in St. Paul, Minn. to the opening ceremony of the Olympics in Atlanta, Ga.

Terry in Pain - My Run
Tickets to MY RUN Premiere Event are available at participating theater box offices and online at For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the web site (theaters may be subject to change). A portion of proceeds will benefit the LIVESTRONG Foundation.

Presented in association with, LIVESTRONG and Life Time Fitness (NYSE: LTM), MY RUN is a tale of two marathons: one began when God called upon Hitchcock’s wife after losing her battle with breast cancer; the other when he set out to honor his wife on a journey to bring awareness and a voice to the struggles faced by single parent families and their children. Hitchcock ran in spite of freezing rain, unbearable heat, chest pains and bone fractures; fueled by his faith and a higher calling he didn’t stop until he crossed the finish line.

Billy Bob Thornton - My Run Narrator
This powerful and uplifting film takes audiences along with Hitchcock as he runs 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days. Together with his son and support team member, Hitchcock will discuss their journey and share a deeper look into the struggles of the 2,000-mile endurance test in a pre-recorded Q&A following the documentary. Audiences will learn about the emotional and physical toll on Hitchcock after the run and how his faith got him through the toughest of times, which is discussed in this exclusive event.

“It’s truly a story of endurance and faith,” said the Dove Foundation, which awarded MY RUN the “Family-Friendly Seal of Approval.”

MY RUN, directed and produced by Tim VandeSteeg and produced by Mark Castaldo, will be shown in 518 select movie theaters through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.
