The Extra Mile - The Official Charity Miles Podcast

Oct 19, 2022

Robin McGeough is a professional licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor, the Director of Chemical Dependence Services at Aurora Charter Oak Hospital, and a recovering addict himself.

Robin is also the founder of Run4Recovery, an endurance and community event designed to provide vital support to those recovering from alcohol and drug addictions in the San Gabriel Valley.

Robin founded Run4Recovery after a friend presented a challenge: if he could run 20 miles a day for 10 days, they would donate $1,000 to a charity of his choice.

Robin met the goal and raised $3,500 that year.

Since then, over the last 15 years, Run4Recovery has raised more than $310,000 for the Puente House Foundation scholarship fund.

While the event originated as a running feat, the team transitioned to riding ElliptiGO elliptical bikes to prevent joint and muscle injury. 

Robin has personaly run and ridden thousands of miles to draw attention to the cause.  This year, starting on September 26, Robin ran 502 miles on an EliptiGO over 5 days.
