About the Race

Layout of the Event (2015)

The Third Annual South Florida Heroes 6K will take place in Coconut Creek’s beautiful Tradewinds Park.

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. The Heroes in Recovery movement started because according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 20 million people needed substance abuse treatment last year and did not receive it. About 10 million Americans did not receive needed mental healthcare. The stigma associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders creates a significant barrier to individuals and families seeking help.  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. These races inspire communities to support recovery and also to live healthy, active lifestyles.*

*We do not offer registration refunds under any circumstance. 

The 2015 Charity Beneficiary

SusanBNewLOGO_2014SFL

The charity beneficiary for this race is the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center located in Pembroke Pines, FL (South Florida). The mission of the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center is to transform families by providing help, hope and healing for mothers and their children to live responsible, drug-free lives. The Center is the only residential treatment facility in Broward County that allows the children to reside with their mothers.  This removes the number one reason for women to not enter treatment as it prevents their children from being place in the Foster Care system. In 2010 the Susan B Anthony Recovery Center pursued and achieved accreditation with CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). This achievement is an indication of our organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served.
