Inspiring people to recreate their identity through various activities is my passion and "turning addicts into athletes" is our mission.
I am excited to announce that the Odyssey House "Run for your Life" team will participate in the TCS New York City 2017 Marathon. "Run for Your Life" is a running program, started by Odyssey House, comprised of enthusiastic mentors and volunteers who devote their time to help clients battle the vicious cycle of addiction. This program teaches clients about the importance of total health and wellness, encourages clients to regain and maintain their sobriety through being physically active, and inspire and train clients to complete a 26.2-mile run.
This fundraiser is very important for the team. The proceeds will help pay for multiple races that we will participate in leading up to and including the marathon, the team's uniforms and footwear for the big day.
Thank you all for your support, your contributions means a great deal to us.
