The Heroes in Recovery mission is to #breakthestigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help and create an engaged sober community that empowers people to get involved, give back and live healthy, active lives. While we're grateful for these achievements, the demand for an addiction and mental health social movement is greater than ever.
In response to this need, we're excited to announce our new virtual 6K race series in addition to the six live races we will host in 2018 at various locations around the country. Register for a traditional 6K held in a city near you or select 'virtual participation.' As a virtual racer, you have the freedom to run or walk anytime, anywhere, while receiving exciting, branded, gear to help spread the Heroes message. Sign up for one, two or up to six virtual Heroes 6Ks. The more races you register for, the better the swag you'll receive.
A total of 11 different organizations across the country will benefit from the Heroes in Recovery 6K race series throughout the year. These nonprofit charities often serve populations that face barriers to finding treatment.
