September is National Recovery Month, something very near and dear to our hearts at Aid in Recovery.

In honor of this, we are pleased to invite you to celebrate sobriety with family and friends at our inaugural Run for Recovery 5K.

This chip-timed 5K run will be held along the beautiful trails of Indian Riverside Park. Come for the challenge or just for a scenic walk. There will be water stations along the route, as well as cheering fans throughout the course.

If you are up for a challenge, just want to support a great cause, or simply wish to enjoy the day with good friends and family, this event is appropriate for you.

Run for a Cause

Early bird registration is $25 until September 10, 2016 and $30 after. Proceeds from this community event will be donated to NOPE Task Force and House of Hope. Read more about these charities below.

Walk, Run, or Come for the Family Fun!

Following the race, there will be plenty of fun! A free kid’s dash will be held for children under 10. There will also be music, food and other refreshments, and an award ceremony. Come out to race, and bring your whole family!

About the Charities

NOPE (Narcotics Overdose Prevention & Education) is a 501-c3 nonprofit organization that takes a comprehensive approach to preventing substance abuse and drug overdose. Their mission is to reduce the frequency and impact of drug overdose through community education, family support and purposeful advocacy.

The cornerstone of the NOPE mission is a high-impact, multimedia presentation that is delivered to middle, high school and college students.  NOPE Task Force partners with addiction professionals, law enforcement and families who have lost loved ones to substance abuse in order to present the program. The NOPE program is a research-based program and has empirical support showing that the prevention messages have been heard by the students and have changed their knowledge and attitudes towards drug use. Many youths reach out to NOPE’s wealth of resources beyond the presentation and seek guidance for themselves or to get help for a friend.

House of Hope has been helping people overcome hunger and hardship in Martin County since 1984. Today, the agency touches the lives of about 6,000 people per month with services that include basic needs — food, clothing, furniture, financial assistance — and long-term case management that helps people build life skills for a more self-sufficient future. The agency has service centers and thrift stores in Stuart, Hobe Sound, Indiantown and Jensen Beach.

Typically, people seeking help from House of Hope are those who work for low wages and exist paycheck to paycheck. One-third of the people we serve are children whose families are struggling to make ends meet.  Many people seeking help have suffered a recent catastrophe, such as a medical problem, domestic violence, a death in the family or a sudden job loss. We serve many low fixed-income retirees and veterans who live on Social Security or VA benefits of only a few hundred dollars a month.  There is never a cost for services provided by House of Hope.

  1. Hi ,I’m with Amethyst Recovery and I’m curiuos how much it is to set up a booth at this event. and do you do have a group registration fee?

  2. Hi!

    We are the owners of Infinity House which is comprised of 7 sober living homes in Palm Beach County. We’d like to offer this event to our residents. The only questions we have are if there are finisher medals for this race and if there are event shirts in race package. We’ve done one previous 5k in which race shirts were included and they were a hit with our residents, giving them a feeling of having earned something. Anyway, if medals or shirts are not included, we will make our own 🙂
    Thanks for your time!

    • Thank you so much for reaching out and expressing interest in our 5K event, we are super excited. The registration does include the t-shirt and winners of the race in each age bracket receive trophies. We would love for you all to sign up! If you or your residents register soon we can personally deliver the t-shirts to you and you are free to decorate them. We could also bring you some posters that you could put up in your Sober Living homes and flyers to pass around. We would be more than happy to bring them to you. Thank you again for reaching out and look forward to seeing you at the 5K!
