UNC Charlotte’s Collegiate Recovery Community will be the beneficiary of the inaugural Charlotte Heroes in Recovery 6K Run/Walk scheduled for 8:00 AM, Saturday, June 21, at Reedy Creek Park.
According to its website, Heroes in Recovery is a movement ignited by Foundations Recovery Network and the widespread community to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help.
"This race is the type of community event that draws attention to the important work that we do every day," stated Carol Rose, marketing specialist for the Collegiate Recovery Community. "We work hard to break down the cultural stereotypes and stigmas associated with addiction, and we want people to celebrate recovery and put the spotlight on healthy lifestyles."
Ten exemplary students were acknowledged during the annual Honors and Awards Program held Monday, April 14, in the Student Union. The ceremony recognized students’ outstanding achievements in academics, community service, and leadership.
Awards were granted to celebrate the students' commitment to the campus community, enriching the college experience for fellow students, and developing good citizens and stewards for the future. Additionally, students were recognized for athletic achievement, integrity, and mentoring other students.
Congratulations to all of our students for being recognized with these prestigious honors.
