Event

Running for Jim (Menlo-Atherton PAC)
Proceeds from this event will go to the ALS Association Golden West Chapter for research into ALS and support of those dealing with ALS in the Bay Area and their families, and to the Jim Tracy Special Needs Trust.

Running for Jim is a film about grit, determination, and the powerful will to "finish".

The film chronicles the story of Jim Tracy, the deeply dedicated, brutally honest and tough-love coach of the San Francisco University High School cross-country team. Under Jim's leadership, University High School girls' cross-country holds a record 9 state championships, making Jim the most decorated high school cross-country coach in California history.

In June of 2010, Tracy was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Running for Jim explores how Tracy, once a competitive runner, now faces the greatest challenge of his life. The film captures Tracy's courageous battle with ALS and how he continues to inspire his athletes despite his grim diagnosis and deteriorating health. Poignantly, the coping tools and strength Tracy has instilled in his athletes might be the most important lesson of all, as his runners attempt to process and understand the physical decline of their favorite coach.

The film runs 80 minutes and will be followed by a brief discussion led by film producer Robin Hauser Reynolds and Coach Jim Tracy.
