    Here is the link for ordering the free dvd but this movie is just starting production on 10/7/2011 and although the movie is listed as free, there is a shipping and handling charge.

    You may want to contact the company to let them know what the news is saying because according to the website, this dvd won’t be available for quite some time.

    Here is the link to their store: http://www.racetothefinishthemovie.com/store.php – Most likely when the DVD comes out you’ll be able to order it direct from their store.

    As co writer and 2nd unit director, I am proud to have been part of this work. Greg Robbins and I worked on this from the kernel of an idea over the phone and what blossomed forth was this wonderful story of courage and love. It was a fantastic experience to be part of and thanks to everyone in Buffalo for your kind support during the shoot.

    What a great inspirational film! I actually cried twice and the second time
    was faith filled tears of joy. I really think this movie is a major outreach
    to the mainstream world.

  9. 20 July 12, 10:51am

    I LOVED being in this film! Great story based on true events in Greg’s life. Everyone did a phenomenal job! A film that will touch you and cause your heart to soar! Like Peter Kent, I was honored and humbled to be one of the writers and Associate Producer on this inspiring film! It needs to be seen—-Please spread the word!

    Race To The Finish is a touching story worth telling an told in a beautiful and sensitive presentation. I have seen many things Greg Robbins has written and directed an he has a way of choicing wonderful stories and telling them in a wholesome and creative way. I say this as an observer and an actor who has woked with him and under him,

    I can not wait to see the movie myself, as a slow person, who was totally bullied in school.
    for exsample: my worst experience was ON A 4TH GRADE SCHOOL BUS. MY BULLY DANNY
    ACTUALLY STUCK A GUN TO MY SIDE, DEMANDED MY MILK MONEY….HIS PARENTS
    REFUSED TO MEET WITH MY PARENTS AND PRINCIPAL……I CHOOSE THE HIGH ROAD,
    SOOOOO MANY KIDS TODAY WANT TO GO ON THESE MASSIVE SHOOTING SPREES TO
    GET EVEN..FOR WHAT?!? THERE NAME ON THE WORLD NEWS AND A LIFE TIME JAIL
    SENTENCE…MAYBE…., I would like for my name to be on the world news for what I did good
    not that I harmed someone or caused total sorrow to their friends and family, AND MY FRIENDS
    AND FAMILY FOR THAT MATTER.

    Wow Carol, your comment really blessed me this morning. I’m so sorry that anyone has to go through being bullied for any reason. I am so thankful that you were one of the ones to choose the high road. You will really be blessed by this movie.

    Carol you are a brave and amazing person. I am blessed to know you and this story is for all of us that where a Harlan and need a Paul. We need to be encouragers not discouragers.

    AWE!!!!! Thanks Annelie (beautiful name by the way) The director, Greg Robbins has more
    AWESOME FILMS, SHOWS TOO!!! Like the movie C Me Dance or Stuck In The Past or the
    tv show Pastor Greg…I think of him as the Christian version of Stephen Speilberg LOL He is
    REALLY GOOD!!!!!!!

    Yeah, The bulling thing really do have lasting affects. Like really low self esteem, unsure of
    one’s self……BUT I REALLY LEARNED HOW TO KEEP ON TRUCKIN’ and now, if I see a kid
    being bullied, I step in. Like “Why are you doing that to him/her?” “Would you like to be
    treated that same way?” HAVE A BLESSED DAY :O)

    wanna thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart for taking a chance on me. I so
    wanted a Paul so very much back then. In the movie trailer…Nancy’s charter was saying to a
    group of people and Paul….thay Harlan can’t drive and he can’t do this AND I WANT YOU TO
    STOP FILLING HIS HEAD WITH THESE PIPE DREAMS!!!!…..THOSE WORDS WERE

    (Bubble 2) see, people just look on the outside and shy away. But if people would stop and
    take the time in this MICOWAVE WORLD, people will be totally blown away from “US” :o/
    companies work may be slow, BUT IT WOULD BE PERSIS, NOT THROWN TOGETHER, AND
    HOPING IT IS RIGHT……

    WELL, SERMON’S OVER, KIDS, ENJOY YOUR WEEK :O)

    I watched the movie multiple times and every time I am touched beyond words. Movies like this heal our louls and help heal the world. This is a movie I will keep in my library of teaching tools for life. I believe iit is time to love one another with Gods unconditional love and be encouragers not discouragers. Thank You Race to the Finish. I loved the acting also it wastouching. I felt Gods presence.

    Hello everyone,
    Does anyone have a free study guide to use with the movie?
    I can’t access the finish the race website and can’t download it.
    If anyone has the online version of the guide, could you send it to me through email.
