“This song was written as a response to my doctor (this is Chad) who diagnosed me with Multiple Sclerosis and said I’d be paralyzed within 7 years. That was 9 years ago, and I’m feeling practically symptom free through a holistic/nutrition-based regimen. For this video, Ian and I wanted to invite individuals who’ve had inspiring journeys and struggles of their own to sing this song with us. We are so humbled and proud to share these positive examples of human potential. They remind us that there is still a lot of light in this world.”
“We’ve also created a website (www.wontstoprunning.com) where people can share their stories of overcoming adversity. Currently, we’re featuring the stories of the individuals in the music video, but we want to make this much bigger. We’d love to hear and share your #WONTSTOPRUNNING story too. Let’s show the world that there is another side to all the negativity and fear brewing out there – the ability of the human spirit to endure and persevere. You can submit your story on the website.”
“And finally, we have a Won’t Stop Running shirt available in our webstore. We made this shirt in collaboration with Billy the Artist, who is featured in the video, and a portion of proceeds are going to his charity-of-choice, Fine Arts Association.”
