WOOSTER — The 10th annual Break the Cycle event kicked off at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Wayne County Fairgrounds.

The event included three different bicycle rides and a 5K walk through downtown Wooster with stops at the OneEighty residential treatment houses and the Oasis Recovery Club. Break the Cycle began in 2011 by the volunteer community group The Risers as a way to reduce the stigma surrounding the issues of substance abuse and addition and to support the treatment and prevention services offered at OneEighty.

Christy VanSickle, the chair for the Break the Cycle committee, was impressed with the number of riders and walkers that turned out for the event. Prior to the event, 160 people pre-registered to attend, she said.

Last year was a record-breaking attendance year for the event, VanSickle said, adding this year may have topped it.
