The Just One Run 5K Race:
In tackling the complex issue of substance abuse, the Ryan Harrington Foundation keeps their goal simple…JUST ONE. Whether hosting an education forum on addiction to a large crowd of people (which often includes public Narcan training) or simply funding MBTA passes for women living in recovery homes, our hope is always the same: If we can help JUST ONE find and maintain their recovery, we have succeeded. Everything starts with one. The proceeds of the Just One 5K will directly impact the lives of those affected by the disease of the addiction.
The Just One Run was in memory of Sean P. Curtis
