Giving Tuesday: Choose Adventure, Run for Charity

Running for charity has countless benefits, both for the athlete and the organizations they choose to support. The athlete has the opportunity to make a difference while doing something they enjoy, and for the organization, more participants means more people sharing a vision and supporting a mission.

There is a brain disease sweeping our nation, and unlike most other diseases, this one comes with an ugly stigma. Runwell works to change negative perceptions associated with addiction by bringing people together in a positive way, engaging individuals to foster a healthy lifestyle and provide a continuum of care for those in active recovery. Our athletes raise funds that help us provide access to alcohol and drug treatment programs through financial scholarships with qualified treatment centers.

Running an event with Runwell means having the opportunity to change perceptions and give hope to someone struggling with the disease of addiction. It means bettering yourself and your future with experienced coaching and successful training plans. It means achieving what you never thought possible, and helping another do the same.

We were voted a Top-Rated Nonprofit by Great Nonprofits, click below to read reviews from people that joined Team Runwell (spoiler alert: no complaints)!

By joining Runwell, you gain access to exclusive bucket list races! This past November, 18 Team Runwell athletes finished the New York City TCS Marathon. Collectively they raised over $75k to go toward scholarships for addiction treatment.
