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."
