Tyson’s Run is streaming now, and you definitely want to check it out! You can buy it on DVD or digital now!
This feel-good story of faith, grit, and courage is a welcome change to the cultural norm on our TVs right now. The unlikely alliances that support a teen on the autism spectrum will have your family walking away inspired! Fifteen year old Tyson watches his hero father lead the high school football team, and yearns for his approval. This leads Tyson to push himself further than anyone thought possible.
Tyson’s Run is relatable, and an absolutely beautiful picture of the blessings that pour out of determination and building relationships, and accepting others. The heart warming story of overcoming odds, changing perceptions, and of loving others is going to be a family favorite. This is probably most appropriate for kids 12+, but as always, make sure it is okay for your family-everyone is different.
I enjoyed the soundtrack, Tyson’s sweet disposition and innocence, watching his character change and grow, but especially seeing the “normal” mold being broken. I loved that the film gave Tyson, and children on the spectrum, a voice that shows they are not abnormal. We are all different, and that’s a good thing. Things have a way of working out for the best (a doctor in the show)- boy, don’t they! 😉
Thank you for a film we can watch without worrying what messages are being sent to our children. The messages in Tyson’s Run are clear- love, genuine kindness, and determination always pay big dividends.
Four-time Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams recorded If You Be-
lieve, an original song, just for Tyson’s Run.

Parents should know: There is some bullying in the school (the characters are not glorified who do this, but cause several obstacles for the main character). There are a some words/name calling our family doesn’t use, though these are not main themes or in the majority of the film. There is also standing up for what’s right, and defending those that cannot defend themselves. All of these situations are used to show the changes and redemption of characters in the show, but also how to do what’s right when others are doing wrong.
