About Run 4 Recovery
Twenty-four years ago from a jail cell in Hollywood, I prayed to a god for a way out. A way out of suffering, homelessness, estrangement from my family, hopelessness and a constant aching in my heart to be able to live life free from the misery of addiction. A prisoner contemplating the memories of a lost life. The promise of a talented young dancer leaving high school for college only to end up living on the streets stealing for drugs. A brother's frustration and anger at repeated attempts to rescue and save his only brother, who did not want to be saved, and the price paid for his unfailing love. A mother's love as she tells her dying son that she must let go, due to her exhausted resources and emotional pain as she watched him struggle trying to stay clean. The catastrophic disappointment felt by all involved of yet another relapse.
I run to give hope to those suffering from addiction.
I run for the addict who can't see any way out of addiction.
I run for the family members of addicts who have lost all hope.
