Letter from Founder
September 27, 2012 to October 06, 2012 is run 4 recovery 2012. A year older several back procedures under my belt and ready to ride that "crazy bike" (Elyptigo) down hwy.1 to show my appreciation for my beautiful recovery life. Every passing month and season brings me closer to first passion, recovery and helping newly recovering alcoholic/addicts. Excited about the 2012 run 4 recovery daily training for what will be an epic ride.
In closing, Puente House Foundation, Karl Moris, John Boots and staff have taken-in countless homeless and hungry alcoholic/addicted individuals off the street. This past year alone Puente house sober living homes have given food, shelter and a warm loving environment to call home to dozens of newly recovering individuals without question. Moreover, I was at this home with a family member who was struggling with addiction and was approached by numerous individuals who overwhelmed me with their sober stories of how their lives have changed (Family and jobs) as result of the funds donated to run 4 recovery. Thank you for your support, please join me on September 27 through October 06 2012 for the 2012 run4recovery.
Sincerely, Robin McGeough
The Run 4 Recovery Route
320 miles in 10 days
Monterey to Malibu, On September 27, 2012 I will start in beautiful Monterey California down historic hwy. 1 (Cabrillo Hwy) into the forest studded and fabled Big Sur, on to the shore-breaking artist community of Cambria, through Lompoc and into unchartered run 4 recovery territory Casitas Pass continuing into Ventura county and finally ending in los Angeles county the surf riding community of Malibu on Saturday October 06, 2012. Ending the run/ride closer to home (familiar recovery community of the greater Los Angeles area) will be convenient for those who care to join in on the last day of this journey.
20 years ago, I began a new life after being saved from a decade battle with drug and alcohol addiction. That help came in the form of a county funded drug and alcohol treatment program. During my ten-month stay, I was provided with food, shelter, medical care, as well as clothes from their donation table. Most importantly, I was given hundreds of hours of guidance on how to maintain my new drug-free life.
Every day I am witness to the ravages of addiction, and the toll it takes on family who are unable to help their loved one continue on the road to recovery due to the lack of funds and resources. Run for Recovery is an act of reciprocity. I run so that I can give back to the community that provided for me in my time of suffering, and in turn do so for others who seek to maintain their own drug-free life.
