On August 26, 1978, Brian Bratcher, a promising fifteen year old football player at West Chester Henderson High, sustained a life-challenging spinal cord injury during a scrimmage and became paralyzed. The community came up with the idea of organizing a sponsored 10K race as a way of defraying his medical costs and other expenses resulting from his injury. They hoped to get 100 participants for the one-time race, over 2000 showed up for the event. The race committee's goal was to raise $500, but to their amazement, they raised $20,000. The injured Bratcher was overwhelmed and insisted "Next year, let's do it for someone else." Brian’s Run looks at how the injury of a talented athlete has become a source of inspiration for an entire community and created a 30-year tradition in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
