I believe so strongly in the mission of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation which states that “we are a force of healing and hope for individuals, families, and communities affected by addiction to alcohol and other drugs.” As someone who has found recovery from addiction, I am running to raise money to ensure others have access to the highest level of treatment for addiction. And well beyond the money, I am running to raise awareness that help is available to those who suffer from addiction, whether it be the addicted themselves or the families and friends who love them. No one has to struggle alone, and it is okay to ask for help.
Personal goal: $2,500
