Has your life been impacted by someone's substance use disorder?
Are you a person in long term recovery?
Participate in the Recovery 5K Walk & Run!
This is a community event to raise awareness about addiction and to create a positive experience for all participants.
Our message is that recovery is possible and people do get better. Although addiction is a chronic condition, it is treatable. There is significant stigma regarding addiction, so the Recovery 5K Walk & Run hopes to change that perception and offer hope.
This event also serves as a fundraising opportunity to help our community. This year's proceeds will be split between Interior AIDS Association's medication-assisted treatment program and Fairbanks Wellness Court. Sponsored by Turning Point Counseling Services.
