- Terry Hitchcock didn't plan to make his running journey into a film. "I did the run and then said to myself 'I'm going to go on and do other things.' I did the run with no real fanfare, he said. "Every day I was competing with the Olympics in the news. I did my run and then it was over. Then the idea of making it into a movie started snowballing over the years..."
- One of the reasons Terry's accomplishment is so notable: "I'm not really a runner," he said. "I don't look at myself as a runner."
- Terry Hitchcock's story is being made into a feature film.
- Terry Fox is one of Hitchcock's heroes. Fox's run inspired Hitchcock's run."I remember picking up the paper and wondering where Terry is today," Hitchcock said. "During his attempt, he raised $24 million."
- "I wanted to do something for single parents and their children," he said. "I wanted to represent those 37 million people."
- Hitchcock trained for 17 months. The most important thing his trainer taught him was to never give up.
- Halfway through his training, Hitchcock had a heart attack. He didn't tell his trainer; said he went on vacation.
- Billy Bob Thornton (the film's narrator) loved Hitchcock's story and wanted to be a part of the film. Thornton even wrote a piece of music that is in the documentary.
