MEET THE DIRECTOR

PAM RICKARD, RRCA Certified Coach
Ultra-Marathoner
Pam@herrenproject.org

Over the 35+ years of her running career, Pam has completed countless races, including more than 80 marathons and ultra-marathons. Her races have included a 7-day adventure across China’s Gobi Desert and a 100k trek through the Alps from Italy to France. In 2008, her journey from addiction to recovery was featured in the book “A Race Like No Other,” New York Times writer Liz Robbins’ chronicle of the 2007 New York City Marathon. She was also a member of the 2016 6-person Icebreaker Run team, running across the US to bring awareness to mental health issues.

Pam says that without her finding the foundation for her recovery back in April of 2006, none of it would have been possible. “The fact that I can run at all now, let alone do it while building a community and helping others through the work of Herren Project, is a priceless gift. Whether it’s a 3-mile training run, or a major event, my mantra is, ‘I don’t have to run, I get to’.”

– OUR STORIES –

My last run of the season!  Such an amazing season of running, especially in honor of my brother, Paul, who lost his battle with addiction on April 10, 2016.  The Herren Project brought me back from a bad place after his loss and gave me purpose to share his story and help so many that suffer. – Laney Nee

THP saved my life…they believed in me when I couldn’t even believe in myself.  I am forever grateful for the love and support I received from THP on this journey.  I wouldn’t be where I am today without their help!  I’m rebuilding my life…one day at a time.  Everything I’ve gotten back over the last 7+ months is due to THP believing in me and never giving up on me! – Tricia Bonzey

There’s a Somali proverb that says, “Either be a mountain or lean on one.” When I started taking my first steps to sobriety, I was fortunate to be surrounded by family and friends to lean on and encourage me. Now, 7 years later, it’s my turn to support others and ‘be a mountain’ for them. Working with THP Runs is my opportunity to give back to others what was so freely giving to me. – Stefan Barner

Being a part of The THP runs group has been a wonderful experience. It’s just been one of those things where I think I am the one who is providing a blessing to others, but in the end, I am the one who received the blessing. – Ed Pry

I ran for The Herren Project because even though my cousin lost his battle with addiction, I strongly believe the work THP does will help others’ win theirs. Through joining THP RUNS, the stories I heard, both of pain and of hope, truly impacted me for the better. I gained an entirely new perspective around addiction and have since had many conversations with friends, family, and coworkers to help break the stigma. There are so many incredible people that make up the THP family, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be one of them. – Eric Croci

Each day that my husband pours a bowl of cereal, gets our son on the bus, drops our daughter off at preschool, resolves an argument between siblings, wipes a teary baby’s face or kisses me goodnight, is owed much in part to THP. Without this organization we wouldn’t have the chance to be a family with normal ups and downs because he wouldn’t be here. I’m grateful every day to be a part of the THP Runs family so that I might pay forward the opportunity for someone else in crisis to be the person they are meant to be. – Mary Cassel
