GODSPEED chronicles the journey of two men riding across America, faithfully pursuing a personal calling to raise money for the orphans of Haiti.
“Godspeed gives audiences a firsthand account of what it is like to face inner and external challenges, while testing the limits of friendship on this grueling trek across the country.” - Faith & Fitness Magazine
“Godspeed inspires audiences with its uplifting story of resolve, conviction and the strength of the human spirit.” - Ray Nutt, Fathom Events
The inspiration to overcome breathes life into “GODSPEED” as it chronicles a first-time race team – Jerry Schemmel, noted author, speaker and sportscaster for the Colorado Rockies and Brad Cooper, a four-time Iron Man triathlete – as they compete 24 hours a day for seven days covering 3,000 miles of deserts, mountains and plains overcoming physical exhaustion, sleep deprivation and extreme mental anguish competing in the world’s most difficult cycling race – The Race Across America. Pedaling 168 hours non-stop across 12 states from the Pacific to the Atlantic Oceans, Schemmel and Cooper embark on the journey of a lifetime - a race that would provide an extreme test of physical endurance and dependence on faith, all for the greater purpose and personal calling to raise money for the orphans of Haiti.
