SAINT RALPH, Michael McGowan’s upcoming inspirational comedy film, will be used in a national screening series held by Goldwyn Films and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training program. This film premiered at the Toronto film Festival 2005 and has a tentative opening date of August 5, 2005.
The story is about a teenage boy who overcomes a great deal to train and partake in the Boston Marathon. He believes he needs to do this in order to help save his dying mother. This film shows hope, inspiration, and challenging goals while being very motivational.
Both groups are very excited to take part in such a great event. By screening this film nationwide, they are promoting awareness for the organization and also the importance of helping to keep those affected by such factors motivated and hopeful.
