Heroes in Recovery 6K Race
April 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
The charity beneficiary for the 2018 San Diego Heroes in Recovery 6K is The Turning Point Home.
The San Diego Heroes race is a unique 6K run/walk presented by Southern California’s Recovery Centers (SCRC) and Foundations San Diego, an outpatient treatment center of Foundations Recovery Network.
Heroes in Recovery has a simple mission: to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help, to share stories of recovery for the purpose of encouragement and inspiration, and to create an engaged sober community that empowers people to get involved, give back, and live healthy, active lives. It takes a heroic effort to live clean and sober each day, and a Heroes 6K celebrates that effort. The sixth kilometer separates a Heroes race from a typical 5K to symbolize the extra effort it takes to sustain recovery. The six kilometers also represent the six letters in the word HEROES.
This event is a smoke-free, pet-free event according to the regulations of San Diego Parks and Recreations.
