Join us on April 30, 2017 for the Road to Recovery SF. Last year's event was the first of its kind community celebration of recovery from addiction in the SF Bay Area (it sold out!). This half-day of wellness includes a family-friendly 5K walk/run, art, inspirational speakers, yoga, dance, music, healthy foods and so much more! It’s an open invitation to celebrate life with friends and family, bring attention to recovery, and shatter stereotypes.
Presented by The Mortar Foundation and hosted by Center for Open Recovery (COR), Road to Recovery SF is a day of pride and connections as we redefine, educate, inspire and co-create what it means to live freely, without shame, in OPEN recovery. Time to step out of the shadows, end stigma and help others find a life worth living in recovery.
Special Recovery Month Promotion: begins September 7, 2016 ends September 30, 2016
