Strides Across Texas was a benefit run that the Snowdrop Foundation’s founding member, Kevin Kline, embarked upon to raise pediatric cancer awareness for Texas Children’s Cancer Center. His 482 mile, 13-day solo run began on December 20, 2009 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, TX. Kline ran for 13 days, until finally reaching his destination— Texas Children’s Cancer Center.
The film introduces Chelsey Campbell, a pediatric cancer patient, and chronicles the year of training and the journey of Kevin Kline in Strides Across Texas. Each of the first 12 days, Kline ran for a child that had died from cancer. The 13th day, he ran for all childhood cancer survivors.
