RELEASE RECOVERY FOUNDATION

RELEASE RECOVERY FOUNDATION



WE SAW A SERIOUS BARRIER TO HEALING IN THE RECOVERY SPACE, AND WE CHOSE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.



After years of working in behavioral health, Founding Board Members Zac Clark and Matt Rinklin identified a problem. Too few people that needed treatment had a way to access it. Insurance rarely covers the cost of life saving care–and because of the barriers that exist lives were being lost, particularly those in underserved communities.


Rather than sit back and wait for a solution, the team took matters into their own hands. In 2020, they founded the Release Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Release Recovery.


The Release Foundation provides scholarships to individuals without the means to afford quality treatment. The Release Foundation team ensures that everyone who wants treatment gets it–regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.



OUR EVENTS


Our belief in the power of marathons has deep roots. When Founding Board Member Zac Clark moved to New York and watched the NYC Marathon in person for the first time, he was incredibly moved and inspired. He saw a day where it did not matter where you were from, what you believe, or who you know – a day where everyone rooted for each other for a singular purpose.


Two of our great supporters at our New York Marathon shake out run

That inspiration led him to search out an organization to run for the following year and raise funds during his effort. RunWell was the choice and the tie to Caron and recovery were perfect. For the next number of years, he followed his personal mantra of “Keep Going” and started a streak.


500 of our valued supporters joined us for the New York Marathon shake out run. What a day!


Today, RunWell has morphed into the Release Foundation and we are grateful to have our staff, friends and partners run several marathons per year around the world to raise funds for our cause.
