All proceeds from the race will go to support recovery from addiction efforts in the Eastern Kentucky Region, in particular bringing educational trainings and town hall meetings to our communities to provide community wide information about recovery, be able to provide care packages of hygiene items for those entering into inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation and providing transportation to inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation for those going and who do not have any way to get there. We are also interested in assisting families of loved ones in addiction and going to drug treatment to be able to get to visitations, treatment team meetings, etc. so that recovering addicts can have their support system!
