Comments: Race for Recovery is a 5K walk/run fundraiser.  The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about the impact drug addiction is having on the Shelby County community.  Drug addicts are treated like criminals instead of being offered treatment.  Judge Dwyer insisted on helping these individuals.   Therefore, he created Shelby County Drug Court.

Shelby CountyDrug Court has been intervening on the lives and families of the arrested due to alcohol and drug problems. Drug Court reduces drug use, reduces crime, saves money, restores lives, and saves children, and reunites families.

All proceeds from the 5K, will go directly to offer services to participants in the Drug Court program. Services that help our participants become productive tax-paying members of Shelby County. These participants in turn will strengthen our community.
