Event Information

Early Registration (through April 12) $25.00, Registered participants will receive: short-sleeve technical t-shirt and finisher's medal.Entertainment, Fun and Food: Bring the family and stick around after the run/walk for music and entertainament. Charity:The charity beneficiary for this race is Mount Bethel Human Services. Mount Bethel Human Services is a 501c3, faith based organization that was founded in 1993, due to the over representation of minorities in the juvenile justice system. Since their first program, Teen Alliance with Clergy(TAC), they have addressed issues that have been detrimental to the family unit. Today they provide services that are designed to empower families instead of enabling them. Motivation for the Event:According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 20 million people needed substance abuse treatment last year and did not receive it. 10 million Americans did not receive needed mental health care. The stigma associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders creates a significant barrier to individuals and families seeking help. Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) has ignited a grassroots movement called Heroes in Recovery to celebrate the heroic efforts of individuals, families, healthcare professionals and institutions in fostering a society where people can seek the help they need without feeling ashamed or isolated. It intends to remove the social stigma associated with people who are in recovery, to recognize the heroic effort it takes to overcome the obstacles in seeking help, and to celebrate the act of preventing the past from kidnapping the future.
