About The Event

Recovery is still happening and we need you. When you Run for Recovery – wherever you are – you’re raising awareness for people who are recovering from the effects of substance use and mental health disorders and other health issues. You are helping to raise thousands of dollars to fund treatment and support. You are providing hope and healing to individuals and families throughout Central New York.

Presented by Cross Insurance, The Run for Recovery 5k and kids fun run raises funds and awareness for people who are recovering from substance use and mental health disorders. Nearly one in twelve people will be impacted by an addiction, yet only 10% will receive treatment. With several ways to participate, everyone can have an impact. Even the smallest donations make a big difference.
