Houston Run for Recovery  (1407)

Scheduled for Sunday, September 12, 2010, and presented by Santa Maria Hostel, Inc., Extended Aftercare, Inc., and The Council on Alcohol and Drugs Houston, we plan to put Houston on the map for recovery celebration initiatives. Beginning at 7:30am at
Sam Houston Park in Downtown Houston, there will be a 5K Run and a 5K Walk, following a course down Allen Parkway to Waugh Drive and back up Allen Parkway to the Park, covering 5 kilometers or 3.1 miles. Immediately following the race will be the Extended
Aftercare After Race After Party, which will be an outdoor festival in Sam Houston Park beginning at 8:30am and featuring live music, an Awards Ceremony to include local, state and national dignitaries, a traditional Volleyball tournament, children's activities,
and the Sizzlin’ South of the Border Cook-Off Competition. The special guest speaker of the event will be Matt Russell, former pastor of Mercy Street at Chapelwood United Methodist Church. Matt is returning to Texas to reconnect with his recovery friends and
to share his message of hope and humility. Matt started Mercy Street in 1997 and currently lives in Lubbock with his family, while pursuing his PhD.
