Proceeds from the run will be distributed to event organizer Runners Against Destructive Decisions (RADD), and to Hope Manor in Bismarck and the Burleigh County Drug Court. RADD is a running group formed by South Central District Court Judge David Reich to help those recovering from addiction seek healthier lifestyles and to increase awareness of addiction issues in our community. RADD runs every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings from the YMCA and provides running shoes and race entry fees when needed. Hope Manor has served close to 200 people in their journey toward addiction recovery and operates two women’s and one men’s homes as safe places of hope. The Burleigh County Drug Court provides an alternative to incarceration for individuals who have committed nonviolent drug-related crimes.
