We're excited to announce our featured speaker for this year's Don & Mira Ball Education Builds Hope, Dr. Brenda Combs! She is living proof of what the human spirit can overcome. With her life story dubbed “from homeless to hero” by the media, Dr. Combs overcame a cocaine addiction and an unrelenting life on the streets to attain a master’s degree in special education, earn a doctorate in organizational leadership, and become a teacher of at-risk youth – all while raising a young son on her own.

Our guys are loving working out with A Running Start. We are so thankful to their volunteers and to John's Run/Walk Shop and Clays Mill Veterinary Clinic for their kindness, and generosity, and their support of such an important part of recovery! #sharethelex ... See MoreSee Less

Tonight was about receiving. Believe it or not, many people working through low places in life feel unworthy. Unworthy of grace, of love, of attention, or praise and of reward. HUGE thanks to John's Run/Walk Shop, our runners tonight were gifted for their hard work with shoes and clothing and gear to jump start their running!!!! They EARNED this. They have been dedicated and hard working...and that comes with rewards for positive habits!! And Clays Mill Veterinary Clinic gave a large monetary donation to help supply winter gear so we can keep on keeping on!!! Yes, there are consequences to choices. But that does not mean there will never be a silver lining again. Or that you are unworthy. We are super proud of our runners! They deserve a reward!!! Go shop at John's Run/Walk Shop and use Clays Mill Veterinary Clinic...they have HUGE HEARTS for others!! #rewards #deserving #newkicks #ARunningStart #thanks
