About the Race Arizona 6K Dog graphic

The Arizona Heroes race is a unique 6K run/walk presented by Foundations Recovery Network. Foundations Recovery Network’s mission is to be the leader in evidence-based, integrated treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders through clinical services, education and research.

Heroes in Recovery has a simple mission: to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help, to share stories of recovery for the purpose of encouragement and inspiration, and to create an engaged sober community that empowers people to get involved, give back, and live healthy, active lives. 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.

The 2016 Charity Beneficiary


Heroes in Recovery 6K is proud to announce that the 2016 charity beneficiary for the Arizona event is Step One, Inc. Step One’s mission is to introduce a 12-Step-based program to newly sober individuals in a clean, safe environment. People rarely quit abusing drugs and alcohol without getting the proper care and support, but many people cannot afford to go to a rehab facility. This is where Step One offers support with a 90-day treatment program that requires clients to get a 12-Step sponsor and attend one 12-Step meeting daily. Clients must also be willing to get a home group and a service commitment. All of Step One’s staff members are in recovery and are more than willing to teach new clients about how the program works.
