Enough is enough-Lets Fight

$16,644 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 207 people in 11 months
My name is Phil, I am an auto mechanic working in Underhill,VT. Iam a father, a husband, a skateboarder, a road cyclist, and I am an ultra marathon runner. One thing I don't want to be anymore is a friend grieving over the loss of another to addiction, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Over the last 2 years my wife and I have lost 6 close friends and many others we knew to addiction, and something needs to be done. My goal for this campaign is to raise $50,000 to go to local organizations supporting and helping with Sober housing and transitional homes. All money raised will be split equally between; VFOR ( http://vermontfoundationofrecovery.org/
) and Vermont Recovery Networks ( https://www.vtrecoverynetwork.org/
My plan is to run the entire Long Trail, 273+ miles over a 10 day span starting Aug 24th and finishing by Labor Day weekend. Thats averaging over 27 miles per day, camping on the trails and carrying supplies. I am hoping to recruit people along the way involved in this cause in Vermont to join for a few miles along the way as well as helping with resupplies. Planning of the trip is currently in the works and updates will be posted along the way. Any and all input is greatly appreciated. I will be keeping this page updated and be creating a Facebook page that I will be adding names and pictures of those lives that have been lost to addiction in hopes of opening some eyes to the scale of this need in our state.  A bank account has been set up that the money raised will be transferred to at the end of the campaign and checks will be written to both VFOR and VRN. Thank you and talk to you soon
peace

Almost to $7000 with months to go, this is AMAZING. I will be in Montpelier today at the Statehouse for Recovery Day, rubbing elbows and sharing stories. Our first fundraising date has been set for April 14th at TALENT skatepark. 6-8pm with a suggested donation of $10 to skate. Check Facebook for the event page and more information. I recently received a donation of a pair of trekking poles from Outdoor Gear Exchange for the hike/run, so the gear is slowly starting to come together. If anyone may have an in for silent auction items please reach out to me. The April event will be the first of a few in the spring. Have a GREAT day.
