THE LONG RUN
I am inviting you to join me today in supporting a special new film project set right here in Oregon, featuring the running rehabilitation program at Oregon State Penitentiary. I am excited to be working closely with the producers on this film, featuring a subject that has been personally important to myself and so many others.
We are at the very beginning of this film experience. Your contribution today will have a tremendous and immediate impact. And for those of you who would benefit, tax-deductible giving is available through Subterracon's nonprofit sponsor, Fracture Atlas.
Please read the email from Producer/Director, Paul Lewis below. Contribute today if you can and share this message with others you think may want to join us. Your support will be invaluable to a story worth telling.

Dear Supporters of The Arts and of Ben Andrews!
Inspired from conversations with author and runner, Ben Andrews of Portland Oregon, Subterracon Films is launching a new film project exploring the life-transorming running rehabilitation program at the Oregon State Penitentiary. This film is at the very early stages of pre-production and Subterracon is inviting those who would like to see this film become a reality to contribute to the Start-Up phase of the project.
About the film:
The film takes a deep dive into the people who have made this unique running program at Oregon State Penitentiary a success — from those on the outside who volunteer their time, to the incarcerated who've made running a part of their rehabilitation, to historical figures like Steve Prefontaine, who started it all. Their journey changed their lives. Their story may change yours.
Giving at the very beginning of any project has a tremendous impact on a film's success. That's why, for those who give now, donors will receive a variety of naming credits to go along with the many other benefits to come. (See Giving Levels below.) Your contribution will absolutely make a difference!
To more information and to contribute today, please visit our website: subterracon.com
And please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions about the benefits of giving or the project as a whole.
