This Saturday is the Run for Recovery 5K at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Hosted by Recovery Resources, this 5K is to supports and advances National Recovery Month which is in September. This is especially timely and important as our country — and especially my homestate of Ohio — are in the middle of a crippling opioid epidemic.
One really cool thing they are doing this year is giving participants the opportunity to paint or write on a rock in celebration of someone currently in recovery or in memory of someone who lost their life to addiction.

After the event, these rocks will be placed in a rock garden at Recovery Resources location downtown Cleveland.
There’s still time for you to sign up and join the run! There is also a 1.5 mile walk for those who don’t want to do the full 5K. You can also donate to this amazing organization: so far they have raised about $35,000 which is incredible but they are still short their goal of $40,000 so even running at the Cleveland Zoo isn’t your thing, there are still great ways you can help!
Love from the ashes,
