Last year, we hosted over 600 people to represent every life lost in Cuyahoga County in 2016 to accidental overdose. Over $100,000 was raised to help provide prevention, treatment and recovery services for those we serve. This year our goal is to have over 800 runners and walkers of all ages, raise over $100,000 and to celebrate recovery and stand alongside family and friends of those who have lost loved ones.
Each year, Recovery Resources strives to advance the cause of National Recovery Month. In 2013, we generated community support and awareness by hosting our first annual Run for Recovery. Since then, the Run for Recovery has grown each year, turning into one of the best ways to celebrate recovery.
For our 6th Annual Run for Recovery, we're excited to be back at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. All 5K and walk participants will receive a free ticket to spend the day at the Zoo. There will be a lot of family-friendly activities during the event, including the chance to write a message on our "Wall of Hope". Organized by the Recovery Resources Associate Board, and Co-Chairs Christine Benner and Cally Fleming, Run for Recovery is an excellent way to kick-off Recovery Month.
