DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On August 16th Harrigan Foundation presented Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network with an $8,000.00 check from their inaugural Run to the Rescue 5K Run/1 Mile Walk Fundraiser from February 2016! Harrigan Foundation's founder, Doris Harrigan was overjoyed to present the funds to help with co-pays for counseling and treatment for First Responders such as Firemen, Policemen, EMT's and Nurses, Lifeguards and Veterans seeking help.
The Harrigan Foundation believes in the mission to create opportunities for addiction treatment for these everyday heroes in our communities. Run to the Rescue is an exciting annual event hosted by the Harrigan Foundation organized as a way to not only raise money for First Responders in need of treatment, but also to raise awareness in the community and bring people together for this incredibly important purpose.
This gift will go to helping afford treatment services to the men and women who have fought tirelessly everyday to protect their communities.
Everywhere there are First Responders in need of help with addiction and trauma disorders and the Harrigan Foundation has made a commitment with the Run to the Rescue 5K Run to help our heroes however we can. Through our continued efforts to develop cutting edge training opportunities and educational materials in the fields of mental health and addiction, and through actively raising money to pay for the treatment of First Responders, we are making a difference.
We want you to come make a difference with us! The second annual Run to the Rescue 5K Run/1 Mile Walk is scheduled for February 4th, 2017 at Anchor Park in Delray Beach Florida.
