About This Activity

Unite with us and take a stand against tobacco!!
The Hang Tuff, Don’t Puff 5K is a benefit run/walk to celebrate National Kick Butts Day and raise funds to support STAR Council on Substance Abuse. Since 1981, STAR (Solutions Toward Addiction Recovery) Council has been quietly providing needed services to those families suffering from substance abuse challenges. We are a 501c3 charitable organization whose motto is “Making a difference, one family at a time.” Our team of dedicated professional educators and counselors is passionate about providing prevention and treatment services to Erath, Hood, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker, Somervell, and Wise county residents.
Primarily funded by contracts from the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and matching funds from the United Ways of the supported counties, each year STAR Council provides Life Skills Training to thousands of students in over 30 schools. These nationally recognized programs increase the youth’s resilience to the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs.
This year our Adult Treatment Programs will help many community members understand, find and keep sobriety.
