About Run 4 Recovery
Run 4 Recovery / Ride 4 Recovery has easily become one of the most deeply meaningful aspects of my life and personal recovery. This year's Journey of 500 miles (approx. 40-60 miles per day x10 days) is down historic Highway 1 through the wine country of Ventura and the canyons of Los Angeles to bring support and attention to the suffering chemically dependent individual and their families. Without the generosity of the donations raised for food and shelter given by the Puente House Foundation there would be little hope for those in need
28 years ago (5 years before got clean and sober) I was beat-up and robbed in the Charlie Hotel in San Francisco. I jumped out a 3rd story window off a fire escape to the ground. Consequently I broke both of my feet and spent almost a year in a wheel chair, convalescing at my mother's home in Orange County. People have asked me "What is wrong with you" , "You must be crazy to run 200 miles on foot for 10 days, two years in a row, and then to ride 500 miles on a bike for 10 days three years in a row." The truth is I am a bit crazy with hope, hope for the people who can and will recover from this deadly disease of addiction. With our help. Thank you!
Sincerely, Robin McGeough
