StepbyStep WV and the WV Council of Churches have a joint venture partnership placing AmeriCorps VISTAs across the state to help communities with capacity building dealing with the Substance Use Disorder issues those communities are facing. The profits from this race will go to help support the local peer recovery groups in the Boone County area.
After the race there will be food and family games at the park. The local peer recovery groups, faith leaders, and various organizations will have fellowship and share information about their efforts in the community.
