The charity beneficiary for this year’s event is MARR’s Right Side Up (RSU), which offers long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment for women with dependent children under the age of 13. Women need a safe, structured environment to develop the skills necessary to achieve lasting recovery. Our services are designed to help them obtain employment, restore relationships with their loved ones, retain and/or regain custody of their children, give birth to drug-free infants and become valuable, productive members of the community. MARR continues to set the standard in long-term, gender-specific addiction treatment for chemically dependent men and women. We are dedicated to bringing each client lifelong recovery through intensive, high-quality programs that are centered on the therapeutic community model. We walk with clients for life.
About the Race A unique 6k run/walk presented by Foundations Atlanta. A Heroes in Recovery 6K is a 3.728 mile race that brings together those in recovery, their loved ones, supporters of the cause and whole communities in order to break the stigma surrounding addiction and mental health conditions. 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.
