Compassionate Runner, Linda Quirk, Announces Goal of Raising One Million Dollars for Caron Treatment Centers - A Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center

That Helped Her Stepdaughter Reclaim Her Life

BOSTON, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- At 55, Linda Quirk is about to embark on an amazing journey -- seven marathons across seven continents. She will begin her trek across the globe by running next week's Boston Marathon. The goal of this heralding feat is to help raise one million dollars for Caron Treatment Centers' addiction scholarship program that helps families in need pay for addiction treatment at Caron. Caron has already given $8 million in scholarships this year. To help achieve her goal, Linda has launched http://www.Run7on7.com, a captivating website that will be documenting her adventure around the globe while accepting the much-needed scholarship donations.

"I have a long journey ahead of me," says Linda Quirk. "But I'm hoping my story encourages people to visit Run7on7.com to learn more about helping families in need get the treatment they deserve. I also hope it inspires all generations to seek out the joys or running."

Caron is a nonprofit addiction treatment center that helps those affected by alcohol and drugs and their families begin a new life. Linda's stepdaughter began her journey from methamphetamine addiction to recovery at Caron's Renaissance Institute in Palm Beach, something Linda is forever grateful for.

"We're honored that Linda has chosen Caron as the recipient of such a substantial fundraising initiative," says Missy Orlando, Executive Vice President, Corporate Planning and Communications at Caron Treatment Centers. "As a Caron boardmember, Linda's leadership efforts will help provide funds for so many families that need our care."

Like many of the families that have benefited from treatment at Caron, Linda actually experienced the heartache
