Strides in Recovery

Imagine the feeling of going from rock bottom of your addiction to crossing the finish line of your first 5K, 10K or half marathon. This is the life-changing experience we create by bringing recovery-focused running/walking programs to the clients of Southern California addiction treatment programs.

We are small and ready to scale up. We are looking for board members who can help us plan, fund, and/or guide that growth. If you have a solid background in fundraising/development, marketing/communications/public relations, and/or strategic planning and want to use it to help save lives, this opportunity is for you.

For a more thorough description of the organization and board member responsibilities, please respond to this post or email us directly at info@StridesInRecovery.org.

Mission Statement

Bringing the healing power of exercise to addiction recovery communities.

Description

Training for an endurance event with the support of a team is a metaphor for recovery from substance use disorders and for life. Strides in Recovery brings this life changing experience to residential addiction treatment facilities, sober living homes, PHPs, IOPs, Alano Clubs, and others throughout the recovery community.

"I run with the team because it makes me feel like I'm part of something special. It taught me how to keep pushing forward and not give up."
-Noah M.

"Training taught me to keep going and hold on even when I don't want to."
-Jillian C.

"It was a great experience showing me that I could change in recovery. At first it was hard to go even a small distance. But, by the end of the training, I was much stronger and could go the distance. I can go the distance in recovery too."
-Stan R

"Training showed me that this isn't going to be easy and that life isn't always going to be easy either. Sometimes you have to push through the tough times and stay on the right path. You'll eventually get to your destination."
Amy P

"Being part of this team makes me feel like I have a family again."
