Every September, Odyssey House marks National Recovery Month by bringing together present and former clients, staff members, friends and supporters for our signature event, the annual Run for Your Life 5K Run & Recovery Walk. What started 12 years ago as a modest group of dedicated individuals crossing the finish line to raise awareness and funds for the recovery movement has grown into a family-friendly day of festivities, including children’s games and face painting, Zumba, health and wellness booths, and refreshments.
Today, with the worsening opioid crisis, we need more than ever to shine a light on recovery. We ask that you join us on September 9th at Icahn Stadium, on Randall’s Island, as we come together to do just that.
Thank you to our corporate partners who have already pledged their support. And if you haven’t yet done so, there’s still time to become a sponsor! Download the sponsor packet or contact Carolyn Abrams at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Proceeds from Run for Your Life help us maintain our programs and provide a safe, supportive residential community focusing on drug-free living, family reunification, and educational and vocational training. Your involvement can make a real difference to families working to rebuild their lives; young adults struggling to launch themselves into the world; and seniors committed to a new, dignified lifestyle.
