BENEFITING: RIGHT SIDE UP INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 22, 2017
Heroes in Recovery 6k benefitting the Right Side Up Recovery Center. Join me in supporting their mission and combating the stigma associated with addictions and mental health disorders. Chances are, almost all of us know someone who is/has battled this or have even dealt with it personally. Heroes 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 three million actually seek treatment. We’re looking to reach 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.
