Heroes in Recovery 6k  (5816)

09/13/2014 8:00 AM - 09/13/2014 10:30 AM

Heroes in Recovery has a simple mission: to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help, to share stories of recovery for the purpose of encouragement and inspiration, and to create an engaged
sober community that empowers people to get involved, give back, and live healthy, active lives. We’re holding events across the country, seeking to inspire a sense of community wherever we can. One of our main events is the Heroes 6K race – not 5K, but 6K
– to create awareness of the need for treatment and to support those who are in recovery.
