This family-friendly event raises awareness of and funds for the recovery movement with a day of festivities, including children’s games and face painting, Zumba, health and wellness booths, and refreshments.

In the years since the opioid epidemic emerged as one of our most urgent public health threats, much progress has been made to stem the tragic loss of life: tens of thousands of lives have been saved by naloxone, opioid prescriptions have dropped by more than 22%, and nationwide, opioid overdoses treated in emergency departments decreased by 15%.
This is great news, but our work is not done yet – there are still thousands of New Yorkers in need of treatment. We have a role to play in reversing the nation’s opioid epidemic and saving lives. We invite you to join us on September 14th as we recognize the perseverance of the families, young adults, and seniors who work so hard for a dignified, productive, and healthy new lifestyle. Your support helps us keep fitness and wellness programs available for our clients, including the NYC 2018 marathon team featured in The New York Times.
