Heroes in Recovery 6K – Austin 2017
December 2, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 pm UTC-6
The Austin Heroes race is a unique 6K run/walk presented by Foundations Recovery Network. Foundations Recovery Network’s mission is to be the leader in evidence-based, integrated treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders through clinical services, education and research.
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. It takes a heroic effort to live clean and sober each day, and a Heroes 6K* celebrates that effort. The sixth kilometer separates a Heroes race from a typical 5K to symbolize the extra effort it takes to sustain recovery. The six kilometers also represent the six letters in the word HEROES.
Interested in helping out at the Austin Heroes 6K run/walk? Volunteers have the option to run the race, too! Each volunteer will receive a Heroes volunteer shirt at check-in. (Be sure to register for the run/walk if you plan to do both).
