Tommy Preem has every-thing a teenager could want. He's a star athlete, good looking and popular. This isn't the case for his best friend, Daniel.
Daniel Cravens is bound to a wheelchair and is dying. Surprisingly, it is Daniel who has the optimistic view of life, while Tommy is depressed and lives in turmoil. When a two-day cross-country run is scheduled, Daniel asks his best friend if he can run the race carrying Daniel on his back so Daniel can say he completed the race before he died.
Tommy agrees to carry Daniel in a sling across his back, but only if they enter to win. Run for Daniel is the inspiring, unforgettable story of how Tommy helps Daniel prepare to die, while Daniel shows Tommy how to live.
