Heroes in Recovery 6K

24 09 2014

Fleet Feet is proud to sponsor the Heroes in Recovery 6k coming up on November 8. Why a 6K? One kilometer for every letter in “heroes!”

The race starts downtown at Court Square. The course takes you through the downtown area of Memphis and along its riverfront to end back at Court Square Park. There will be awards presented to top three male and female participants, with both overall and age group winners. The awards ceremony will be followed by a free raffle with great prizes, activities and food for the whole family. Plus, you’ve probably never run a 6K before, which means an instant PR!

More about the race

Heroes in Recovery 6kHeroes in Recovery is a movement ignited by Foundations Recovery Network and the widespread community of those who are in recovery from addiction and co-occurring disorders. We discovered that while 23 million people each year need help for addiction, only 3 million actually seek treatment. We’re looking for the other 20 million– those who may not be seeking help due to the overwhelming stigma that often surrounds substance abuse and mental health disorders.

Heroes in Recovery has a simple mission: to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help, to share stories of recovery for the purpose of encouragement and inspiration, and to create an engaged sober community that empowers people to get involved, give back, and live healthy, active lives.
