Run for Recovery. It is not a race to nowhere. It is a race to a solution.
 
The Run for Recovery is a chance to pay money to run a course that doesn't really take you anywhere. In a zoo. For people with addiction and other mental health issues, this sounds all to familiar. Indeed, I myself ran that symbolic race to nowhere many times. Some who run that race end up locked in cages like the animals. Or sick. Or hungry. Or with no place to go. And some who run that race, like myself, have been lucky enough to have the necessary resources to get out of the race.
 
But there are so many who do not have those resources. Who suffer everyday because there is no one to help them get off that self-destructive path. Recovery Resources helps people in need get the treatment necessary to overcome addiction and mental health issues.
 
That is why this race is so important. It is not a race to nowhere. It is a race to a solution.
 
But the mere fact of us running around the zoo is sadly insufficient to accomplish these lofty goals. Recovery requires hard work and commitment, but it also cost money. Please donate to the Run for Recovery and help Recovery Resources provide people in our community who are struggling with addiction and mental health issues a chance to be the best version of themselves. Register
