Come join us for the Bernard Greene Memorial 5K! The race starts at 9 am on October 8, 2022 at Deep Run Park.

This event is named after our previous Administrator, Bernard L. Greene, Jr. who passed away on March 7, 2019. Mr. Greene joined the drug court team as a Clinician in 2008 and was promoted to Administrator in April of 2017. In his short 48 years of life, Mr. Greene touched the hearts of many people and helped others change their lives for the better. He led by example and did so with a smile, always. One well known aspect of his life was that he loved to be active and push his body to its limits. He enjoyed running, cycling, and spending time outdoors. We couldn't think of a better way to continue to support his legacy, one that he has already cemented years before now, by naming our annual 5K event after him. An event based on physical engagement that benefits those challenged by addiction is right up his alley! We will be forever indebted to him for all he has done for our community.
Henrico County Drug Treatment Court has been in operation since 2003 and is dedicated to enhancing public safety through assessments and community supervision guided by best practices.
