Text from cover:
When Emmett Smith has a brain tumor removed, he loses his equilibrium and is told he will never run again. Within a year, the determined high school track coach is once again able to run 20 miles. When Cindy Duncan becomes a student at his high school, Emmett challenges her to do the same--set a goal for leaving her wheelchair to walk to the podium to get her graduation diploma.
True story of Emmett Smith and Cindy Duncan, filmed in Glendale, Arizona, where it happened.
