A New Run of Support

471 Recovery Resources is a newly formed non-profit organization that helps individuals with an addiction and their family members. 
Our goal is to provide addicts and their families with counselling and rehabilitation with a recovery program.
Help us to raise funds and achieve this goal by participating in our walking and running event!

What is the New Beginnings Walk & Run:

The idea for this event was born after hearing Jessica Tetu talk about her challenges as child/teenager growing up with a father who was an alcoholic. Jessica struggled through the difficult years, then moved away from her hometown at the young age of 15. She enrolled herself in high school, and supported herself by working full time while attending classes. Jessica became a young single mother at age 18 but still managed to finish high school.

Upon graduation, Jessica started working a job at a spa. She loved her new employment, and  through hard work and determination has built a successful chain of spas. Jess is now the proud owner of four Just For You Day Spa’s in Saskatchewan & Alberta. Ms. Tetu is the Founder & CEO of Lia Reese Canada, (Saskatchewan’s Beauty Brand), and is the Co-Founder of Entrepreneur 306 Business Consulting. Jess volunteers on multiple community and charity foundation boards across the province, and supports many events, fundraisers and community programs.

Recently Jess and her brother founded 4seventyone Recovery Resources, a non-for-profit organization whose goals are to assist addicts and families hurt by addiction by offering private care addiction rehabilitation services. Inspired by Jess’ story, Eddas Events created the New Beginnings Walk & Run to raise funds and awareness for 471 Recovery Resources.


As some people around us can't make it to our event, we have setup this GoFundMe page to receive cash donations that will go directly to 471 Recovery Resources. We would be thankful for anything you can contribute to help us and support our foundation. Every single dollar will make it a long way!

From the bottom of our hearts - we THANK YOU for taking the time to read aboutour cause!
