    September is Recovery Awareness Month and we're gearing up for our 6th annual Run for Recovery! Like last year, we will start at the Riverfront Park and run over the Peter Courtney Minto Island Bridge into Minto Brown Park! But this year, we have a new option: in addition to the 5K and 10K course, we've included a 1 mile walk! The Run for Recovery 5K and 10K are officially timed with age category and overall winners. All running and walking skill levels are welcome. After the event, stick around for food and activities! This event is a wonderful way to support chemical dependency and mental health recovery and show that it is possible! Lace up your sneakers and join us this September!
