7th Annual Run to End Addiction 5K - Saturday, May 20th, 2023
WHAT ARE WE DOING BY RUNNING/WALKING?
Join us on Saturday, May 20th, 2023 for the 7th Annual Run to End Addiction 5K at Bridgewater State University, Bridgewater, Massachusetts in running or walking to Help Fight and End Addiction in communities throughout Massachusetts and New England.
Come support this important race and make a difference in the lives of those who are fighting addiction & alcoholism and also in memorializing those who have lost their lives. This is a significant recovery event that has great meaning, purpose and impact in bringing together individuals & families to help bring freedom, change & healing. Every participant who runs or walks will receive a 7th Annual Run to End Addiction T-shirt, Medal & Swag Bag. There will be a cookout with free food and refreshments along with resource tables & activities.
Recovery, like a race, takes a lot of training, perseverance, hard-work along with a daily commitment to live a clean, sober and changed life. Alcoholism, drug addiction and a record amount of overdoses are continuing to impact individuals, families and communities in a destructive way. Your support and encouragement can help to change the lives of many men and women.
