Bruno Independent Living Aids has signed on as a sponsor of the nationwide "My Finish Line" tour, which couples a documentary about former racecar driver Sam Schmidt with the music of country singer Michelle Murray.
Bruno joins sponsors including BraunAbility, Delta Air Lines and Firestone. Their efforts support screenings of the film, which so far has played at rehab hospitals, mobility dealerships and complex rehab businesses, in addition to Indycar races around the country.
Schmidt, a former IndyCar driver, sustained a spinal cord injury while testing a racecar in 2000. Following his accident, he founded Sam Schmidt Motorsports, which campaigns racecars in the IndyCar series as well as the Indy Lights series for up-and-coming open-wheel drivers.
Murray, who lives with her family in Nashville, Tenn., provides the music for the "My Finish Line" documentary about Schmidt's life and career. The documentary, filmed at the 2010 Indianapolis 500, features motorsports legend Mario Andretti, racecar driver Townsend Bell - who has raced for the Sam Schmidt Motorsports team - and actor Eric Close.
The film has been touring since spring and is due to screen in all 50 states plus several Canadian venues before closing in late December.
The film's producers aim to present every disabled veteran in the United States a copy of the movie on DVD.
