About the Race

Foundations Recovery Network and Medivance Billing Service presents the fourth annual South Florida Heroes in Recovery 6K walk/run at the Huizenga Plaza in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Register with your family and friends to join this run/walk through the streets of Ft. Lauderdale and along the riverfront to break the social stigma with addiction and mental health disorders.

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.
