The UF Health Florida Recovery Center, or FRC, hosted the Inaugural Run 4 Recovery 5K at Depot Park on Sept. 15.
The event attracted more than 150 participants that included runners and walkers, volunteers and spectators. Additionally, many FRC staff members participated, with techs, therapists, fellows, physicians and the research team joining the cause.
September is National Recovery Month and this year’s theme was “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger.”
The FRC team lived this theme, as it brought together employees, current and past patients, family, friends and supporters with the goal of increasing awareness of substance use disorders and celebrating those in recovery.
Thank you to all who helped make this event possible and successful. We look forward to the Second Annual Run 4 Recovery 5K next year!
