24 Hours to Support Recovery

For the second year in a row, Jon Frey will be running for 24 straight hours at the Historic Oakwood Cemetery to raise money for Healing Transitions! Last year with very little preparation, Jon and the F3 family helped raise over $30,000 to support those who are in need!

Jon will begin his run at 3pm on Saturday, December 21st and will run until 3pm on Sunday, December 22nd. Come out and support Jon on this incredible run!

About Jon Frey

Jonathan Frey is an ultra-runner, fitness leader, and person in recovery. In August of 2016, he joined Healing Transitions’ recovery program struggling with alcoholism and substance use. While he was at HT, Jon worked hard on himself and his recovery, getting involved with fitness group F3. He completed the program one year later, and has been in sustained recovery for three years. Jon now dedicates his life to fitness, helping others get involved with recovery outside of HT, and giving back through service. He continues to lead workouts for F3 every week.


Running has played an important role in Jon’s life. Even before his recovery, he found solace and healing through running, helping him through some of his darker moments. Once he began the recovery program at Healing Transitions, he started using long-distance running as a tool for his recovery, and has since completed five 100-mile ultra marathons, and 9 other marathons under 100 miles.
