The 2nd annual Nantucket Island 5K Run for Recovery (& 2 mile Walk) will take place at Bartlett’s Farm on Sunday, September 29th, 2019 at 9:00 am.
Last year’s run was a big success! We raised over $25,000 for Addictions Solutions of Nantucket with approximately 200 runners and walkers participating in the event. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the run, though, was the opportunity for families and friends to share stories, find hope, and realize they’re not alone.
The goals of the run are to come together as a community, decrease stigma, celebrate recovery, and raise awareness of treatment opportunities. Funds resulting from the run go to Addiction Solutions – Dr. Lepore and Aline Wommack’s Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program.
We have all been impacted in one way or another by addiction and mental health disorders – either within our community, our families, or perhaps even experiencing them ourselves. And often the good news about recovery can be often overlooked.
