BERRYVILLE, AR – Kerusso, the #1 source for Christian T-shirts, has been named as the official licensed apparel partner for Soul Surfer. The hit film is in theaters now and has recently eclipsed the $40 million mark at the box office. The movie features an all-star cast, including AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt, with Carrie Underwood in her film debut, and Dennis Quaid.
Soul Surfer is the incredible true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again through her sheer determination and unwavering faith. In the wake of this life-changing event that took her arm and nearly her life, Bethany’s feisty determination and steadfast beliefs spur her toward an adventurous comeback that gives her the grit to turn her loss into a gift for others.

“Kerusso was AFFIRM Film’s first choice for licensed Soul Surfer apparel,” says Rich Peluso, vice president of AFFIRM Films/Sony Pictures Entertainment. “People who are inspired by the film will also be inspired by their Soul Surfer line.”
“We are thrilled to be a licensed partner in this film,” says Kerusso CEO/President Vic Kennett. “Designing a T-shirt that embodies the message of Bethany’s story in the movie is a real honor for Kerusso. It features one of the most memorable scriptures from God’s Word that is shared in the film:
‘I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength,’ Philippians 4:13.”
The T-shirt is available in both standard and junior tee styles, wherever Christian products are sold.
