BENEFITING: THE JOHN VOLKEN FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
When I first got here I was on the verge of death. I had absolutely lost all hope of recovery or being the man I knew I was capable of being. At The John Volken Academy I'm learning how to be healthy and happy for the first time in my life and working on the tools to sustain that for the rest of my life. This place works. I am proof of that and I have seen it with my own eyes in others all around me. All the money we raise from this race goes right back into keeping this foundation running and in turn keeping the three recovery communities going. I owe more than any amount that can be repaid to Mr. Volken for providing a place like this for people to recover, truely recover in. Even if it's the cost of a cup of coffee or soda donated, it will help us. Thank you to all the friends and family out there that love us and support us. It's because of you we have hope again.
