Welcome to Runwell's Grant Application:
Runwell’s mission is to provide access to alcohol and drug treatment programs through financial scholarships. We also engage individuals in exercise to foster a healthy lifestyle, provide a continuum of care for those in active recovery, and to bring people together in a positive way that helps to break down the negative perceptions of those struggling with addiction.
Runwell programs and initiatives are strengthening communities throughout the globe and are Changing Lives…One Footprint at a Time. To learn more about Runwell, please visit
Runwell, The Linda Quirk Foundation provides grants to qualified addiction treatment centers and drug courts throughout the United States and around the world.  We do not make grants to individuals.

Registration for 2015 applications are open. Grant applications must be submitted by November 15, 2015 to be considered for Runwell's 2015 Grants.  Grantees will be announced on December 1, 2015, with funds being distributed around December 15, 2015.

To be considered for a grant as a qualified addiction treatment center, your center must:

.  Have an existing scholarship or designated financial assistance program.
.  Use a support-based training program that involves the entire family because we strongly believe the battle with addiction is seldom won alone; and
.  Ability to show Runwell that the grant funds were used appropriately and according to the contract guidelines.

Runwell is dedicated to inspiring individuals around the world to lead healthy, active lifestyles.  The Foundation encourages anyone struggling with the disease of addiction, as well as their friends and families, to become involved in sports.  We believe partnering physical activity with addiction treatment helps to keep individuals, and their support bases, committed to recovery.

While we continue to receive many great requests, unfortunately, we will not be able to fund every application. Priority for funding is given to treatment programs who have designated funds from race participants. Thank you for your interest in Runwell, The Linda Quirk Foundation.
