The Houston Run for Recovery, now entering its eighth year with its annual race and community celebration scheduled for September 10, 2017, is showing its staying power in a community known as one of the strongest in the nation’s burgeoning recovery movement.
“The Houston Run for Recovery highlights the fact that recovery from alcohol and drug addiction is achievable and celebrates the joy of living a full and healthy life free from substance use.” states Nadine Scamp, co-chair of the Houston Run for Recovery and CEO of Santa Maria Hostel. “In this National Recovery month celebration, our goal is to reach out to the community and say that everyone knows someone who has been impacted by addiction. We want to change the place of darkness and shame that those impacted by substance use disorder so often experience to one of hope and healing in recovery. Recovery is a life-long process, and by running and walking together we show our support for all of our neighbors and loved ones who are making that daily effort to maintain long term recovery.”
Participants are not necessarily individuals who have experienced recovery personally. However, anyone who has seen the benefits of recovery in someone they know and love can understand and share the joy of celebrating it.
While the race celebrates recovery, its goal is to also embrace the entire running community. Join us and register now!
