PUENTE HOUSE FOUNDATION

Puente House Foundation 501(c)(3) started in 1995 in order to give the opportunity of a lifetime to newly sober individuals. From donations raised through the Foundation, alcoholics and addicts are given the chance to move into sober living and gain a solid foundation for a fresh start in recovery. This is made possible through our scholarship program that subsidizes a new resident’s rent until they can create foundation for themselves. Among other agendas and programs, the Foundation places people into the Puente House and other sober living facilities. (If you own or manage a sober living facility and would like to be considered please contact us) These houses include but are not limited to; Hamlin House, Welcome Home, Room To Grow, Pathways, Right Time Sober Living, Homes of Promise and Saving Grace Home. Welcome to our new partners- Sober Living Oregon (OR) and Hope Manor (ND)

WHY WE RUN

What began 12 years ago as a silly dare from a sober friend and fellow runner, Matt Ramage, has become a tradition of service to newly recovering individuals and their families. Terms of the “dare” were that I run 20 miles/day for 10 days to raise money for those in need. The journey continues as we ride “that crazy bike” (an elliptical motion bicycle) 50-70 miles/day for 10 days. The support and participation has come from individuals in recovery, sober living homes, treatment center owners and managers, as well Charter Oak Hospital and many personal friends and family members who participate year after year. With fellow bicycle riders giving generously of themselves to join in this year’s ride, Year 12 looks to be our biggest one yet. Thank you to all the supporters of this life saving mission. 500 MILES: SAN FRANCISCO TO COVINA! Please join us in this spiritual journey to help those individuals and their families recover from addiction.

Sincerely, Robin McGeough
