The Race for Recovery Clients registered for this event in the prior weeks and on this day they met at the clinic where the first car left at 9:00am all participants were given a clue that they had to solve and then drive to that location following all posted speed limits. If they were unable to figure out the clue after 15 minutes they were allowed to call and they were given the answer. Wanna play here is the first clue:
Race Time to get closest to was 123 Minutes
The race winning time was 132 Minutes only nine minutes over and the second place winner lost by 45 seconds!!!!!!!!!!!
We also had a small awards ceremony at the casino where we gave out to awards to two individuals that have helped us change the lives of others and with out there help it would not have been possible. These individual's are Michael Crouch Deputy Director Department of Economic Security and Linda Lopez who also works for the Department of Economic Security and works closely with Michael. We had several Clients who could not get their benefits for one reason or the other, No place to receive mail, no internet access, cant get past the ID-me because of 4 to 5 hour wait times online and the list goes on and on, but due to their unwavering commitment we made it happen for many. One example client homeless living under the freeway, father passes away who was living with him now has a nice apartment for the first time in his life, is now a proud father and maybe most importantly he is clean and sober for the first time in twenty years. The clients that they helped all did a short thank you video individually and yep it made them cry. Once again I will thank you both for being so special and not knowing it. You Changed lives !!!
