Spartan Race against Drug Addiction

On September 18th, I will be running the Sprint Spartan Race at the Killington Ski Resort in Killington, VT. Until then I will be raising as many donations as possible for the Teen Challenge New England Program.  

I will also be recording the entire race with a GoPro and uploading it and creating an edited video and emailing it to everyone who donates as a thank you.

Teen Challenge New England & New Jersey was one of the first Teen Challenge ministries founded in the United States.

Ministry throughout New England emanated from the first center located in Boston established in 1964. A strategic expansion from 1999 to 2007 established sites in all six states of New England and in New Jersey.

Life-changing residential recovery programs provide a faith-filled approach for helping drug addicts and alcoholics transform their lives. More than 400 adult men and women can be cared for in the Teen Challenge homes. A unique Teen Challenge program also exists in the Dartmouth House of Corrections in Massachusetts.

Vibrant outreach ministry into jails, prisons and needy communities are conducted year round. Drug prevention programs are available for public and private schools. The Teen Challenge New England & New Jersey Choirs can be found ministering hope, healing and encouragement in area churches each week.

The corporate headquarters is in Brockton, Massachusetts.


Teen Challenge New England & New Jersey provides youth, adults, and families with an effective and comprehensive Christian faith-based solution to drug, alcohol, and other life-controlling problems in order to become productive members of society.

By applying Biblical principles, Teen Challenge endeavors to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.
