Ru-dy! Ru-dy!

If you’ve ever heard the phrase, “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog,” you’ve probably heard about Rudy. And on September 5, Pace Athletics welcomes the inspiration for the movie to the PLV Campus.

When people say dreams don’t come true, tell them about Rudy. Ru-dy! Ru-dy! Ru-dy! Get ready for your chants, PLV folks, because Rudy’s coming to town!

The Pace Athletics Department is pleased to welcome Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger, the subject of the beloved movie Rudy, to Pace on September 5 to speak to Pace’s student-athletes and the community about his inspirational life story.

For the first time, read his real life story in Rudy: My Story revealing the man behind the beloved movie Rudy, and his continued determination to make his dreams come true. Rudy describes growing up in Joliet, Ill., becoming one of only a few players in Notre Dame history to be carried off the field, struggling to get a movie made about his life, and how losing sight of his own dreams nearly derailed him. Rudy details the failures and hard lessons he’s learned and shows how hitting the reset button was the best thing that happened him.

The talk begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Goldstein Health, Fitness, and Recreation Center, is free and open to the public, and will be followed up with a book signing.
