The Grace House in Drumheller saw more than 150 bik­ers pass through to raise aware­ness of ad­dic­tion.

Fresh Start hosted their 8th an­nual 12 Stop Ride for Re­cov­ery bike rally. Us­ing a scav­enger hunt style rally, the rid­ers made 12 stops, em­u­lat­ing the 12 steps of re­cov­ery.

The Drumheller Re­cov­ery House was step 8 and 9; seek­ing for­give­ness and mak­ing amends, re­spec­tively. To sym­bol­i­cally make amends, vol­un­teers com­pleted ren­o­vat­ing the small bal­cony on the front of the Grace House. Vol­un­teers also made sure the rid­ers were well fed be­fore they con­tin­ued on their route.

Joseph Legacy, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Grace House, en­joyed part­ner­ing with Fresh Start for the event and the aware­ness that it helps to spread.
