Description

All proceeds from Run for Recovery will benefit Recovery Resources' mission of helping people triumph over mental illness, alcoholism, drug and other addictions.

Run for Recovery, in its 12th year, is a signature community event and an opportunity to move for something that matters - whether that is for health, recovery, or in memory of a loved one. More than 450 runners and walkers come together to raise funds in support of our mission of providing hope and help for people struggling with mental illness and addiction. This is a great opportunity for your employees to connect and support with a corporate team.
