The Birth of Racing for Recovery™:

Amidst his own recovery, Crandell recognized the limitations of traditional rehabilitation programs. He realized that merely addressing addiction was not enough to rechannel individuals' addictive drives towards positive actions, breaking the cycle of abuse. Drawing from his experiences and inspirational endeavors, Crandell founded Racing for Recovery™ in 2001. This federally approved 501 c-3 non-profit organization is dedicated to assisting individuals from all backgrounds in preventing and overcoming addiction.

A Multi-Faceted Empowerment Group:Racing for Recovery™ has since evolved into a remarkable multi-faceted empowerment group, touching lives across the globe. The organization offers weekly support group meetings, accessible to anyone affected by addiction, including individuals battling substance abuse, their families, friends, and the wider public. These gatherings provide a safe and nurturing environment, fostering education, support, and encouragement for all parties involved. By embracing the shared experiences and challenges of addiction, Racing for Recovery™ creates a community-driven atmosphere that inspires hope and facilitates transformative change.

Beyond Boundaries:The tireless efforts of Racing for Recovery™ have garnered international recognition, gaining widespread media attention. Coverage of the organization's admirable work has been featured on esteemed platforms such as CNN, ESPN, the New York Times, Great Vegan Athletes, and Runner's World Magazine, and Racing for Recovery™ has become a global symbol of hope, driving positive change in societies profoundly impacted by addiction.
