Join us in the 8th Annual Run for Recovery
The Houston Run for Recovery, now entering its eighth year with its annual race and community celebration scheduled for Sunday December 17 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.”
The event will begin with a non-competitive 1K Kids Fun Run at 8:00am followed by a competitive and non-competitive 5K Run/Walk at 8:30am at 501 Prairie, Houston, Texas. Post race festivities and activities for the children will be held at Fish Plaza, Wortham Theater Center, Downtown Houston. Registration is available online or on-site at 7:00am on the day of the event. Proceeds will go to recovery-based scholarships benefiting program participants at Santa Maria Hostel, STAR Drug Court and The Council on Recovery.
