PHOENIX MULTISPORT 5K RUN/3K WALK
By participating in this 5K Run/3K Walk you are making a positive impact on your community by contributing to Phoenix Multisport so that we can grow our free programming to allow more individuals to Rise from the Ashes of Addiction.
Phoenix Multisport fosters a supportive, physically active community for individuals who are recovering from a substance use disorder and those who choose to live sober. Through pursuits such as climbing, hiking, running, strength training, yoga, road/mountain biking, socials and other activities, we seek to help our members develop and maintain the emotional strength they need to stay sober. http://www.phoenixmultisport.org/
Phoenix’s two primary goals are to: (1) Provide free programs and access to healthy activities for individuals in recovery from substance use disorder; and (2) to connect these individuals with a broader community of people living fulfilling lives in sobriety. Phoenix celebrates sobriety, builds self-esteem, and helps its members free themselves from the shame that often accompanies addiction and breaks the stigma so often associated with it. Phoenix also serves as a bridge between formal treatment programs by introducing individuals to a long-term community of sober, active people.
Phoenix Multisport team members who are active in our program are less likely to relapse, thus reducing the destructive impact on families and our community. By participating in this 5K Run/3K Walk you are making a positive impact on your community by contributing to Phoenix Multisport so that we can grow our free programming to allow more individuals to Rise from the Ashes of Addiction.
All registered 5K Run and 3K Walk participants will receive a race event t-shirt. The first 100 participants to pick up their registration on race day will receive a gift bag. Prizes for the top three male and female and first place for each age category for runners.
