Heroes in Recovery 6k – Arizona  presented by Foundations in Recovery Network—one kilometer for each letter in the word HEROES.  Registration is open now for the run in Gilbert, AZ on December 18th.  The charity beneficiary of this event is Step One, Inc. that works to get newly sober individuals into 12 Step treatment programs including attending daily meeting and getting a 12 step sponsor without the high cost of a rehab facility.

Addiction and mental illness are very real struggles that affect nearly a quarter million people in the US; unfortunately only a small percentage, about 3 million, seek help and treatment for their addiction.  For many the stigma of admitting to others that they have a problem and asking for help is too much. To help bridge that gap Heroes in Recovery has stepped in.  They seek to collect stories of recovering addicts, heroes, and their loved ones to spread hope and inspiration for those still struggling.  The goal is to build and support an engaged, active recovery community and one of the ways they accomplish that is through the Heroes in Recovery 6k.

Recovery requires support and community; Heroes in Recovery seeks to be a voice for those who are unable to speak for themselves.  Come be a part of removing the stigma of addiction. Get your running shoes on and click here to sign up for this great cause.
