The NEW YORK GIANTS and their head coach Tom Coughlin sent this video to the AMND Organization to honor the efforts of Holland Reynolds for her role in crawling across the finish line at her scholastic state track championship meet to honor her coach Jim Tracy who had been diagnosed with the disease ALS. It inspired national news stories and an ESPN feature in two different segments:

The New York Giants caught wind of all this and used it to inspire their team to a Super Bowl Championship! This event inspired a documentary about her coach Jim Tracy named Running for Jim and expounds on why she, in an act of sheer will and valor, crawled across the finish line so that her coach could be honored with another state win (the school owns 10 Girls California Interscholastic D5 State Cross Country Championships).
