Why Run to Support Strides in Recovery

You probably know someone who has been affected by addiction. You know the toll it takes on them, and on everyone around them.  And, as a runner, you also know that exercise helps you feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.  

Think about how good you’ll feel when you earn your finisher medal. Now, imagine going from the hopelessness and shame of addiction to the pride and exhilaration of crossing the finish line. Imagine going from the pain of loneliness to celebrating your shared success with your newly sober teammates.  These experiences show people in early recovery that with the support of a positive community, they can succeed at whatever they put their minds to, including long-term sobriety. Wouldn’t you like to give that experience to some battling addiction?  

By raising money for Strides in Recovery, you can help us create these experiences for people battling addiction.  You can be part of changing lives and saving lives.

Thank you for supporting sobriety, one stride at a time.
