RACING FOR RECOVERY
June 29, 2012

The organization strives to PREVENT drug and alcohol abuse. Each FREE to the public service costs to develop. Because of Racing for Recovery, I am now aware of the financial cost to my State and me. I'd rather see PREVENTION and AWARENESS promoted than keep throwing my money at the endless heap of after-the-fact options that don't save lives before they are harmed.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The organization has developed many FREE to the public recovery tools. With weekly support group meetings that are moderated by Todd Crandell PC LCDCIII and the custom online support group community, addicts, family and friends are able to openly and PRODUCTIVELY participate in the dialog. I've seen and heard from countless people who have stated that the Racing for Recovery message, media, tools and back-story are what had the biggest impact in their newly found sobriety, overall health and fitness.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Refine the messaging so that people are aware that everything that comes into the organization is used to fund these FREE to the public resources and raise awareness.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

Whenever asked, I SHARE the fundraising efforts with my friends and make a personal contribution. Sometimes it's as little at $10, but other times I'm able to ask my friends to help and it ends up being a lot more.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

To help support the Ironman Foundation's support of Racing for Recovery.

What would you tell others about this organization?

Because prevention is the key to cutting into the billions of dollars spent each year on treating, incarcerating, etc. the drug and alcohol problems. We all pay for that. Awareness is the key to prevention and Racing for Recovery is bringing awareness to the problem and the cost we are all paying, both in lives lost and government dollars spent.
