Runwell races in marathons and ultra-marathons on seven continents to raise money for addiction treatment programs around the United States.
(PRWEB) October 12, 2012
Runwell: The Linda Quirk Foundation is now accepting 2012 grant applications to support scholarship programs, professional development training, and family programs at accredited addiction treatment programs. These grants are intended to provide hope to those who want to get well, at a time when hope may be difficult to find.
"Runwell strongly believes that addiction is seldom won alone," says Linda Quirk, Runwell Founder. "These critical grants have the potential to change the lives of those where recovery is, perhaps, just out of reach. When you witness someone close to you getting well, it becomes evident that it is not just a recovery from a disease -- it is a recovery of a life, family, and relationships nearly lost forever."
In the last year alone, Runwell has generated enormous awareness around the globe for their cause and have traversed exotic destinations from the snowy tundra of Antarctica to The Great Wall of China. The organization raises money through donations that runners receive as they challenge themselves in some of the world's most formidable competitions across the globe and often over distances of 100 miles or more. Runwell runners are coached and offered nutritional guidance by United States Olympian Keith Brantly and US Olympic Sport Dietitian Bob Seebohar to help get them there.
"There is a passion we have for running, travel, and helping others in our life's journey," notes Linda. "When some think of addiction recovery they only think of those at rock bottom. We think of all of the possibilities waiting at the finish line."
