Drugs and alcohol destroy lives. Most people know someone who has an addiction problem, which without help leads to serious illness and death.
Hello, we are the Ruddocks.
We are Colin Ruddock and his wife Natasha and our son Brandon, who has recently moved to Birmingham to start a Victory Outreach as there is so much need on the streets of Birmingham, like every other town and city in the UK.
Natasha will be doing the Run4Hope 5K walk/run on 31 Aug along with their 2-year-old son Brandon on his trike! Colin will be doing a 10K walk around Birmingham in August.
We are passionate about this cause and are looking to raise funds so that more recovery homes can be established to help save the lives of more people in substance abuse.
Victory Outreach currently has a number of recovery homes to rehabilitate people that are on the streets, drug addicts, alcoholics, prostitutes and various addictions and crime. These homes save lives. When men and women come into the recovery homes, they are literally at death's door and for many, this is their last chance.
But with the help of Victory Outreach's 12-18 month programme, many see their lives transformed and they are unrecognisable to when they came into the programme.
Many of the programme's graduates have no education or have ever had a proper job, but they go on to further education, training or find employment. Many go on to marry and have families or are reunited with families that have broken down due to addiction.
The success rate is high but Victory Outreach does not receive any government funding and the homes are run by donations. So your donation can make such a difference to someone's life and future.
All funds raised will go towards our United We Can fund which is used to establish bases and homes in more inner cities in need. We are hoping to start a new home in Scotland in 2020.
Please sponsor Natasha and Brandon for the Run4Hope!
