Addiction is a disease that touches all of our lives because we all know someone who has struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol. Maybe it’s someone close to you…a friend or family member…or maybe it’s someone just an arm’s length away. Someone who you know could do amazing things with their life…if only they could get out of the grip of their addiction.
Those who talk about their addiction freely and share their success stories are the ones who make a difference. Our very own Core Crew member, Chad Moye, chooses to make a difference. He has come a long way and shares his story with the hope that he will touch the life of someone who needs to know they can beat the disease and live a healthy, active, and full life.
Read Chad’s story, From Prison to the Podium, then decide if you can make a difference too.
Make It Count is a virtual race that supports Runwell, a non-profit foundation who provides addiction recovery solutions through funding treatment scholarship programs and by enaging individuals in sporting events worldwide. Runwell fosters a healthy lifestyle and begins to break down perceptions of those struggling with the disease.
