Presented in association with ACTIVE.com, 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.

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.
