The Strides for Sobriety Foundation's 5K Run/Walk event will be held at 10 a.m. April 15 at the Karrer Middle School football field, 7245 Tullymore Drive.

Profits from the event will support recovery costs for teens suffering from addiction.

The foundation was created by co-founders Ramona Penland-Coyle and Laurie Penland in response to the strain that addiction can put on families.

Registration for the event is $35. Participants 18 years old or younger pay $25. Details can be found at www.columbus-running.com.
