Directors of The Canadian International Faith & Family Film Festival, Rafael Kalamat and Jason Barbeck, who are making a movie about the Run said, "True stories of courage have a solid place in people's hearts," adding, "Stan is one of the most inspirational athletes I have ever known. This incredible project will be unlike anything I have ever done."
