The Race

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 can’t 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 don’t remember who won the race that day
MUSIC: To show us how to live
ANNCR/SUPER: But I’ll 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!

I have a son that is now 20 with special needs. He is non ambulatory and though a very healthy young adult, he requires us to take care of all his basic needs, but gives back so very much more. So loving and just a joy to be around. My son has truly made me a better person. I'm so touched by this ad and I post it occasionally to remind myself and others of the goodness that is still out there or could be.

It is so sweet, child helps child with special need in such a light-hearted natural way, inclusion brings family brotherhood feeling.
