About This Activity

2014 Charity

The charity beneficiary for the Heroes in Recovery 6K Trail Run/Walk is the Collegiate Recovery (CRC at the UNC Charlotee. They support students recovering from addictions and offer programming, resources and activities which provide a pathway to both recovery and academic achievement. 

The Collegiate Recovery program offers weekly 12 step meetings, experiential activities, peer-mentorship as well as volunteer opportunities where sober students serve their community, build friendships, develop a solid support system, and build a lifetime of fun, happy memories.

Heroes in Recovery 6K

A Heroes in Recovery 6K is a 3.728 mile race that brings together those in recovery, their loved ones, supporters of the cause and whole communities in order to break the stigma surrounding addiction and mental health conditions. It takes a heroic effort to live clean and sober each day, and a Heroes 6K celebrates that effort. The sixth kilometer separates a Heroes race from a typical 5K to symbolize the extra effort it takes to sustain recovery. The six kilometers also represent the six letters in the word HEROES. These races inspire communities to support recovery and also to live healthy, active lifestyles.
