Charity:

The charity beneficiary for this race is The Family Effect (www.thefamilyeffect.org). The Family Effect works to reduce addiction as a leading cause of family collapse and harm to children in Upstate South Carolina. They accomplish this goal by raising funds and recruiting volunteers for effective, research-based programs for families and childtren at the Phoenix Center of Greenville.


Motivation for the Event:

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 20 million people needed substance abuse treatment last year and did not receive it. 10 million Americans did not receive needed mental health care. The stigma associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders creates a significant barrier to individuals and families seeking help.


Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) has ignited a grassroots movement called Heroes in Recovery to celebrate the heroic efforts of individuals, families, healthcare professionals and institutions in fostering a society where people can seek the help they need without feeling ashamed or isolated. It intends to remove the social stigma associated with people who are in recovery, to recognize the heroic effort it takes to overcome the obstacles in seeking help, and to celebrate the act of preventing the past from kidnapping the future.
