Media has a huge influence on our culture, and it matters how Christians are portrayed. Now, Tim Tebow (whose foundation started here at NCF) and NCF giver Erik Dellenback (both executive producers of the movie) present a film that is as real as it is touching.
Tim Tebow, the Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback now readying for his fourth season as a minor-league baseball player, knows that being a good Christian doesn’t solve everything.
Even watching Christian movies growing up, Tebow had his doubts when the main character started praying and suddenly everything “was just perfect.”
“That’s not real life,” he said. “Life’s not easy.”
As executive producers of the new film “Run the Race,” Tebow and his brother Robby wanted to create the kind of movie – and Christian life – he longed to see instead: one that’s not perfect, but authentic.
“Run the Race,” the story of two high school brothers trying to overcome their mother’s death and father’s abandonment, sticks close to the power of fraternal love and sports. Zach Truett, played by Tanner Stine, is working to earn a college football scholarship, but after he suffers an injury, he worries he’ll never find his way out of his small town.
