run run revolution

Documentary, Reality

Ten inactive middle-school students aim to defy statistics as they train to run in the youth section of the Boston Marathon. It’s an exuberant and touching 2-hour special series. The kids are models for the next generation of Canadians – where state of health need not be dictated by fast food and video games. To that end, their three months of training includes both physical and psychological rehabilitation.
