Nantucket Island Run for Recovery!
Walkers are welcome, too!
Sunday, September 30th, 2018 at 9 a.m. at Bartlett's Farm
And if you aren’t on island on September 30th, you can still register and run a 5K distance wherever you are in the world.
September is National Recovery Month, and Nantucket Rising is collaborating with Bartlett’s Farm and the Nantucket community to sponsor a 5K Fun Run for Recovery. The purpose of National Recovery Month is to increase awareness of mental health and substance use disorders and to celebrate the power and joy of recovery!
We all know someone who’s experienced problems with addiction or mental illness, or maybe we have ourselves. Either way, the Nantucket Island Run for Recovery offers us all a chance to come together and celebrate recovery!
The purpose of the Nantucket Island Run for Recovery is to:
1) Raise awareness about prevention and treatment options for islanders
2) Decrease stigma and increase understanding
3) Raise funds to support Addiction Solutions of Nantucket
4) Offer hope and celebrate recovery! AND HAVE FUN!
Participants will meet at Bartlett’s Farm - Nantucket Island’s oldest and largest family owned farm. We’ll run along scenic dirt roads to the ocean and then run along Miacomet Pond and back.
Hope you can join us!
