Recovery Advocates of America 8th Annual New Jersey’s Walk/Run for Recovery held on September 19, 2020, at Mercer County Park (West Picnic Area) in West Windsor, NJ.
As you know, Covid-19 restrictions have caused the cancellation of some of our most popular fundraising events over the past several months. While the state of New Jersey’s reopening phases unknown at this time, the possibility remains that New Jersey will return to phase one of the reopening process. In the case we go back to phase one, our walk will be held virtually. For those of you who registered to attend in-person, we hope that we can count on your support. If this is the outcome, you will be registered automatically as a virtual participant.
The Recovery Advocates team is committed to the safety of our community and will be posting updates on Race Roster in accordance to any new restrictions and/or guidelines our state implements during the weeks approaching our event (masks, testing etc.). During the ongoing global pandemic, drug overdoses and substance abuse relapses have increased over 20% and we can’t stress how important your support is during such a critical time. Please join us in celebrating recovery and supporting those who are also fighting for their lives in the continuous struggle with alcoholism and addiction .
This year, our 5K Run/Walk for Recovery fundraising goal is $100,000. All proceeds from the event will go directly into sustaining and expanding RECOVERY ADVOCATES C.A.R.E. Program that is now endorsed by Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri and the State of New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, and our new education/prevention and awareness program throughout all New Jersey High Schools.
Substance use disorder has become a national epidemic.
We greatly appreciate any and all support to help us in our mission!
