2020 5K Announcement for Peter's Place Foundation NFP

Peter’s Place Foundation will be live on Facebook October 3rd starting @ 7am. We will be in Moody Park discussing the Foundation, raising money for the organization, and helping others catch the vision of Peter’s Place. Several board members will be running to commemorate the annual 5K and this run will act as a training run for an upcoming ultramarathon. How far will they run? Tune in to find out.

Now, more than ever, young men struggling with addiction and mental health issues need our help. Please continue to support our foundation. Donations can be made electronically here: or you can mail a check or money order to: P.O. Box 71, O’Fallon, IL 62269. View the Flyer

Ultra Marathon Fundraiser for Peter's Place

From 1999-2016, the number of Opiod-related over deaths rose from 483-1,947 (Illinois alone). From 2012-2016, the number of Heroin related deaths rose from 269-1,040. During that same time frame, the number of Synthetic Opioid related deaths rose from 84-907.

If these stats alarm you, please consider donating to Peter's Place Foundation. Peter's Place is a Non-Denominational Christ-Centered ministry aimed at providing free long-term residential support for young men (ages 18-28) who struggle with substance abuse and/or mental illness.

Right now, in Southern Illinois, there are very few resources available to help those in need.  Board members Eugene Dunkley and Jeff Morris, on 11/9/19, ran the 2019 Tunnel Hill 50/100 Mile Ultra Marathon in Vienna, Illinois.  They would love your prayers, encouragement and financial support as they continue to seek to raise money and awareness for Peter's Place Foundation.
