About Courtney

 

Courtney Roderick was a daughter, sister, mother and loved by many. She always wanted to give to others and help in any way she could, despite not having enough for herself. She wanted to help others before she helped herself. She was strong, bold, and her laugh and smile were contagious.

Courtney fought a long battle with addiction and moved on and joined God on October 8, 2016.

Together we stand to honor her memory, fight stigma, raise awareness and raise money to support those who are impacted by addiction. Our hearts are with your loved ones who are also fighting the battle that Courtney fought so hard to win. 100% of proceeds from the run will be donated to The Eastman House, a recovery center Courtney loved and participated in. The Eastman House is a residential facility for women which offers supportive treatment to women at high risk, especially those who have experienced trauma who are homeless and/or in the criminal justice system
