7th Annual Run For Recovery

The Houston Run for Recovery, now entering its seventh year with its annual race and community celebration scheduled for September 25, 2016, is showing its staying power in a community known as one of the strongest in the nation’s burgeoning recovery movement.

 

“In this National Recovery month celebration, the faces of recovery will be present. We would like to have a greater Houston presence this year as we join our neighbors, leaders and families whose lives have been transformed through recovery. Our goal is to reach out to the community and say, ‘Houston, here we are! Come join us, and be a part of the recovery movement and celebration."

 

While the race celebrates recovery, its goal is to reach beyond those in recovery to the entire running community. The Sponsors of this event, Santa Maria Hostel, Star Drug Court, and The Council on Recovery, along with this year’s planners, are expanding their outreach efforts to include running clubs and increase the race’s level of legitimacy. As more serious runners become involved, we continue to build our numbers and also help others see the promise of a holistic approach to health in all areas of our lives.

 

The event financially benefits the Santa Maria Hostel  Star Drug Court, and The Council on Recovery via funds for treatment scholarships for women and men needing treatment for recovery from addictions.
