Breezy Point 5k returns for their 15th year raising money for Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge
The Breezy Point 5k drew in more than 600 racers with tens of thousands of dollars going to Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge.
The 5k which takes place up Island Lake, Duluth has grown significantly over the past years. And it starts in the drive way of Race Director, Stevie Paulson’s property. Stevie was excited to break the number of racers once again.
Saturday morning he said, “I want to say we’re at 650 people standing in my driveway at Island Lake, I mean it’s crazy.”
There is also a personal connection as to why the race donates to Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge.
“Teen Challenge has a soft spot in my heart I lost my brother to drugs and alcohol,” says Stevie, “I believe if he had the opportunity to go to Teen Challenge, he’d be here today.”
