About The Book


A fascinating look inside the life of an extraordinary man who at the age of ninety-nine continues to inspire, motivate, and challenge others to enjoy everything life offers. The story of Orville Rogers is about the good guy finishing first, but he will tell you in no uncertain terms that all the good in his life––and there has been much––comes directly from God.

In a world of fake heroes and here-today-gone-tomorrow celebrities, Orville’s life story is a testimony to the power of faith, perseverance, and love. Pilot, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and world champion runner Orville Rogers lives a life of risk and challenge. “If I cannot serve God well, if I cannot finish strong,” he says, “all of the achievements are worth nothing.”
