The charity beneficiary for this race is the Susan B Anthony Recovery Center located in Pembroke Pines, FL (South Florida). The mission of the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center is to transform families by providing help, hope and healing for mothers and their children to live responsible, drug-free lives. The Center is the only residential treatment facility in Broward County that allows the children to reside with their mothers. This removes the number one reason for women to not enter treatment as it prevents their children from being place in the Foster Care system. In 2010 the Susan B Anthony Recovery Center pursued and achieved accreditation with CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). This achievement is an indication of our organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served.

Motivation for the Event According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 22 million people needed substance abuse treatment last year and did not receive it. 10 million Americans did not receive needed mental health care. The stigma associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders creates a significant barrier to individuals and families seeking help. Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) has ignited a grassroots movement called “Heroes in Recovery” to celebrate the heroic efforts of individuals, families, healthcare professionals and institutions in fostering a society where people can seek the help they need without feeling ashamed or isolated. It intends to remove the social stigma associated with people who are “in recovery,” to recognize the heroic effort it takes to overcome the obstacles in seeking help, and to celebrate the act of preventing the past from kidnapping the future. While the movement initially focuses on persons recovering from addictive behavior, it is meant also to recognize heroes recovering from many other types of disorders and trauma that can feed or manifest from an addiction. Much like similar movements for Cancer Research or AIDS Awareness, it’s important for the public to understand, embrace, and encourage people who are finding a way to thrive within their own circumstances and live the lives that they desire and deserve.
