Thank you very much for joining us for the 14th annual 12 Stop Ride for Recovery on Saturday. It was great to see so many old and new friends gathered together to celebrate riding and recovery! We hope you enjoyed the day, even with the weather-related detours. The storm may have given us a good soaking, but it didn’t dampen our enthusiasm.

This Ride is an important way for Fresh Start to connect with our community and raise critical funds to help us achieve our mission of recovering lives by housing, treating and supporting people affected by addiction. A heartfelt THANK YOU for your generous support!

With Gratitude,  

Bruce Holstead CCAC
