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 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.
Though the COVID-19 pandemic continues to dominate the news, Odyssey House continues the fight against the opioid epidemic, and our clients need your help more than ever. We ask that you join us on September 12th* at Icahn Stadium, on Randall’s Island, as we come together to raise funds to support the individuals and families in our programs.
Proceeds from Run for Your Life help us maintain our programs that provide safe and supportive residential and outpatient services that address substance misuse, mental health challenges, and homelessness. Your contribution also strengthens family reunification services and provides essential educational and vocational training.
There are several opportunities for participation; click here to download the sponsor packet. Whether you participate in the run/walk, sponsor the event, or donate an item for our silent auction, we welcome all support.
*Should the circumstances require it, the entire event will be held virtually.
