ABOUT RUN FOR RECOVERY
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 7th 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.

WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES
All funds raised will go directly towards life-saving services including treatment programs, client transportation, and every day basic necessities.
Treatment: Whether clients need treatment for the early stages of substance use or have been dependent on drugs and/or alcohol for a long time, Recovery Resources offers a variety of outpatient services, including Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Addiction Treatment Programs, lasting eight weeks. Money raised from the Run for Recovery allows these programs to continue and gets those who need care into treatment.
Transportation: According to Recovery Resources clients, transportation to get to their treatment is the number one obstacle they face. In our annual fund, $76,000 goes toward RTA bus passes and other transportation options. These funds heavily come from Run for Recovery fundraising dollars.
Basic Necessities: Recovery Resources provides clothing, toiletries and other basic necessities for our clients who can not afford them. We also provide uniforms for jobs and trainings to get clients into competitive employment. It's through money raised during the Run for Recovery that makes this possible.
