Finish Line

Every goal begins with a dream. Challenges, obstacles, and distractions also seem to be part of what we must deal with on the way to achieving those goals. Avril Lavigne’s beautiful song “Keep Holding On” underscores this inspiring message to remember your dreams are worth the effort.
Believe In Yourself…Pass It On.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

[guy 1] Hey check it out.
[guy 2] Huh. What happened to that guy.
[guy 1] Put that sign back up!

[lyrics]

You're not alone
Together we stand
I'll be by your side,
you know I'll take your hand
When it gets cold
And it feels like the end
There's no place to go
You know I won't give in
No I won't give in

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through,
we'll make it through
Keep holding on

Believe In Yourself. Pass It On!

Pass It On®

Douglas from South Carolina APRIL 7, 2022
I like how he didn't give up. He must've ran for so long. I could never do that. Very inspiring.

mr pendell from nms SEPTEMBER 21, 2021

Realou Peña B. kahulugan from Quezon City OCTOBER 9, 2020
On what i watched in video,there's a guy who is keep running and aiming the finish line.But what i saw also is the old guy's knee wa bleeding since he ran just to aim the finish line.On what i learned here is,in every race,there's a finish line.In every hardship,there's a success.

John Bernard G. Parista from Don Enrique hts Quezon City OCTOBER 9, 2020
In this video clip 1. I learned that, if you have dreams and goals in life never give up no matter what the circumstances along the way keep pursuing on your dreams. 2. whatever hardship you gonna encounter along the way, keep goin. As there is a sayin that "There's always rainbow after the rain.3. always be positive and trust yourself that whatever trials come across your way, you can make it.

Gianny SEPTEMBER 22, 2020

Mitchell from Sharon  SEPTEMBER 11, 2020
They were talking about how if you find someone you always finish with them and never fail

Dante Brown from 3413 Dutch Flat Court AUGUST 28, 2020
I feel that this man deserves a lot of respect because he did not give up on himself and instead he kept his positive attitude and made it to the finish line and what matters the most is that you are who you choose to be and who you want to be and that is a fact

angel loera  AUGUST 28, 2020

Sam from Oregon MAY 15, 2018
Somtimes just finishing is an amazing reward.

Jan from Nevada MARCH 2, 2018
I had to look up this video to finally understand the last line on the clip shown after hearing it just after our local 700 Club transmission for YEARS. It is unintelligible. The closest I could guess was "Keep comin' on", and I reckoned it was a new phrase in pop-culture. Well, it turns out to be "Keep holdin' on". I'm glad that something made me visit your nice website! I've enjoyed your radio ads for many years. Thank you.

Every time I watch a commercial about gratitude when daughter going away to college saying goodbye to her dad .I cry every time I watch it. I LOVE IT....

Charlene McMurry from McAdory Elementary AUGUST 1, 2014
Awesome - Beginning the school year with my faculty with this commercial. We all felt worn out last year at the end of the school year but we didn't stop. They always give it their all. They are an awesome faculty.

Paige from NJ JUNE 9, 2014
This commercial actually makes me cry every time I see it. Yes, it's great he's sticking with the race and finishing no matter how long it takes. But what makes me cry is that he's alone, no one is there "with him". Then these strangers give a kindness that is invaluable (just like simply smiling at a stranger can make all the difference in the world to them that day if they are feeling alone or invisible to the world).

Christina from North carlinoa MAY 28, 2014
This help me believe in myself to get a good grade on EOG.

Stephanie from Rochester, MI FEBRUARY 25, 2014
That was a beautiful and very encouraging commercial. Speaks volumes about perseverance.

Varda from Atlanta FEBRUARY 23, 2014
A double post, I know. But I watched this video again with my 4-year-old. A few months ago, she ran a kids race where she was the slowest and fell down. But eventually she stopped crying and ran again and got a medal. She wants to run another race and I am using this video to frame the concept of personal achievement with her. "He still wins, even though he's last." I love that this video can be powerfully framed in different ways.

Varda from Atlanta FEBRUARY 21, 2014
To me, this is as much about the race workers as it is about the runner. The runner's tenacity is amazing (and we've all been him). But having the empathy to reach out and celebrate another's courage...that's what makes me cry EVERY SINGLE TIME I see this video.

Jess from New York City  FEBRUARY 16, 2014
This is so nice always believe when someone tells u .. U can't do anything .. U can do it

Keep holding on. Do not give up . cross the finish line. Believe in yourself.. .

Sammie JoJo from Minnesota FEBRUARY 13, 2014
Awesome commercial! Painfully inspiring! That knee plant! Ouch, better than not finishing.

William Selsor from Eustis, FL FEBRUARY 13, 2014
I have seen this commercial a lot and it has personally helped me to believe more in myself. I may be unemployed, overweight, and lonely at times but this commercial reminds me of the strength of the human spirit. It is by far my favorite commercial you have ever done and helps me reflect on my own trials and tribulations. Good job and pass it on! :)

B. from TX FEBRUARY 12, 2014
This commercial made me cry. Didn't think a commercial could do that. Movies, books, even TV shows, but commercials? That's powerful.

laura from nevada FEBRUARY 12, 2014
love this commercial its so inspiring!

Alyssa from Bloomington-Normal FEBRUARY 11, 2014
I think this commercial is absolutely inspiring! I smile from ear to ear each time it comes on! As a runner I know how much it means to not give up on something and how amazing crossing that finish line feels! I absolutely love it!

Roy Segovia from McAllen TX FEBRUARY 10, 2014
Awesome commercial. The positive message it sends, the struggle and pain they show the runner going threw. But he does not give up. Great message. Great commercial.

Lia Z from Pittsburgh Pa FEBRUARY 9, 2014
Thank you for having this commercial. It's beyond perfect. It caught me at the right time when I needed to see it. It was perfect.

John Keiser from Buena Park CA FEBRUARY 5, 2014
My girlfriend and I were in tears and deeply moved by this commercial. What an inspiration of determination it shows us. Kudos for such a positive message in a sea of advertising muck.

Chris Davis from Medford, Oregon FEBRUARY 3, 2014
This commercial is nothing short of brilliant. Absolutely inspiring and amazing, not to mention realistic! We all know that every last one of us would be cheering for this man, as he finishes the race, having set his mind to it and believed in himself. Absolute genius.

Crystal from San Diego FEBRUARY 3, 2014
