(27 August 2017, Clearwater, Florida) Terry Hitchcock is known in some circles as “the REAL Forrest Gump.” Among readers in 27 countries he is known as that man who did the impossible: run 75 marathons in 75 days… after he had a heart attack while in training… after he had found a way to raise three children while juggling a business career single-handedly after his wife died of cancer… and after he’d come to the end of his wits.
This quiet, gentle man believed his grandfather’s words, “Nothing is impossible.” One of the results was this run and the news-media attention he garnered for the plight of single parents everywhere; it was also a documentary film, MY RUN, narrated by Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton, that won top honors in 11 of the 15 film festivals where it was shown, as well as the coveted Dove Award.
Because a feature film, PUSHING LIFE, about Terry is coming next year, Terry’s official, authorized biography is in progress and will be published to coordinate with the film’s release. The working title of the book is Terry Hitchcock’s Improbable Journey (a working title subject to change).
