We are happy to announce RCA Westminster’s 1st Annual Race to Recover! It is our mission to save 1,000,000 lives and break the stigma surrounding the disease of substance abuse by offering accessible, comprehensive and compassionate treatment to all those in need. We are helping to empower those struggling with their substance abuse recovery and support their loved ones through that journey one step at a time. We’d be delighted if you came to join us and our community for fun, food, music and community resources at our 5K race.
Our race starts and finishes at the Recovery Centers of America facility in Westminster, MA and encircles beautiful country scenery. All are welcome whether you’re a top-notch athlete or a first-time racer! Not interested in running? Walkers are welcome, too! Come enjoy the outdoors for a great cause!
So many of us have been touched by this disease in one way or another, and we believe that coming together with our local community members, runners, walkers, spectators, sponsors and volunteers will be a big step toward lessening the anguish and enhancing the well-being of those afflicted.
RCA Westminster is sponsoring this event and covering race related expenses. All money collected through the race registration process is being donated to the Joint Coalition on Health's Facing Addiction Project.
