During shooting of "The Race," the young actors had fun with the working boxcar derby racers. These cars were a delight for the art department to create. Paired with Alabama's song "Angels Among Us," the spot teaches us that sometimes, caught up in the heat of the moment, we may find the richest rewards in life by just pausing and realizing something important may be happening right in front of us.
ANNCR/SUPER: It was the biggest race of the year and no matter what I was going to win. Sometimes things happen that you just cant explain.
MUSIC: Ooohh I believe there are angles among us
ANNCR/SUPER: Some things are more important than winning
MUSIC: Sent down to us from somewhere up above. They come to you and me in our darkest hours.
ANNCR/SUPER: I dont remember who won the race that day
MUSIC: To show us how to live
ANNCR/SUPER: But Ill never forget how I felt
MUSIC: To teach us how to give. To guide us with the light of love.
ANNCR/SUPER: Including others Pass it on. A message from the Foundation for a Better Life.
Including Others. Pass It On!
