In case this is any bit of help or might narrow the search... I saw a video
about 10 years ago that might be the one your friend mentioned. It was a five
minute video of a blind man running a marathon over the mountains with a
friend holding his hand. It was brought to a class I was teaching by a low
level manager in the IRS, who said that they used it as a motivational video.
This, and the fact that it looked to be expensively produced, lead me to
believe it was available someone who does more corporate style distribution.
If you do find a reference, please let me know. It is also an excellent video
for showing media production students how to tell a story in five minutes.
