Dead Man Running is the inspiring story of Todd “OC” Shoemaker who received a miracle from God that defied medical odds and saved his life. Having already been diagnosed with cancer and Parkinson’s Disease, when Todd learned he had the autoimmune disorder Myasthenia Gravis in 2009 his future looked grave, and doctors believed he had just weeks to live. But Todd never lost hope that God had a plan for his life, and in what some thought would be his ‘final days’ he had an experience that can only be explained as supernatural.
Concurrent with his healing Todd heard a word from God to ‘run.’ Having not been physically able to do so for the past ten years, this may have been a surprise to his friends and physicians. But Todd always believed he would indeed run again and had a new pair of running shoes in the closet to prove it! So, as a faithful listener to God’s leading in his life Todd laced up his shoes and ran 1-mile that first day—and has run more and more nearly every day since. In 2020 Todd ran over 1,000 miles and shows no signs of stopping, today you’ll still find Todd praying and sharing the Gospel with those he encounters on his daily runs.
Like Todd, Dead Man Running is full of surprises and stories from wonderful friends and family who witnessed these miracles. The film celebrates a faithful servant who by God’s grace has overcome death, and now spends his days sharing about his God’s healing and the good news of the Gospel with everyone he meets.
Dead Man Running was directed by Landon Popadic and executive produced by John Clancy, Tim Popadic, Sean P. Kelley, John Li and John Borawski, will be available to stream for free on November 17.
