Sheridan to ‘Run With the Bulls’ to Support Rich Center

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Ryan Sheridan, owner and founder of Braking Point Recovery in Austintown, plans to head to Pamplona, Spain, this summer and participate in the annual Running of the Bulls ceremony to raise funds for the Rich Center for Autism.

Sheridan challenges the community to donate $5,000 directly to the Rich Center between now and July 14, when the Pamplona festival ends. Earlier this year, Sheridan climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and raised $30,000 for the Rich Center.

“I just think of the challenges that the children and families affected by autism face every day and it makes these things like mountain climbing and bull running seem like a piece of cake,” Sheridan said in a statement.

Like his earlier endeavor, Sheridan is not asking for support to fund his trip but instead is encouraging the community to continue its support for the Rich Center.

The Rich Center is located on the campus of Youngstown State University and provides tuition free education, therapy, and support year-round to more than 75 local families with children who are on the autism spectrum.

The Running of the Bulls is an annual event that began in the 14th century and continues today as part of a weeklong religious festival honoring St. Fermin, the patron saint of a small region in Spain that encompasses Pamplona.
