RezHOPE Recovery & Consulting will be putting on the First Annual- "Run For Recovery 5K" run/walk. This event is scheduled to take place on September 30th, 2023 in observance of National Recovery Month, which is held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life; and to celebrate the nation's strong and proud recovery community.
This race is hosted by RezHOPE Recovery & Consulting which is a non-profit organization on the rise that specializes in offering transitional services for men. Their unique approach integrates health, fitness, and faith into their programming. They aim to empower men through a holistic approach, addressing not only their transitional needs but also promoting physical and mental well-being. This combination of support and wellness initiatives sets them apart in their mission to help men successfully navigate life transitions, and become leaders they are destined to be. All of proceeds will directly benefit the furnishing needs for the Men's Transitional Living Home.
Kituwah Mound is also known as the Mother Town of the Cherokee People. Hundreds of years ago, Kituwah Mound held the Council House and the first fire. Around the mound was the Cherokee village. During the time of the Removal (1830's), the land was taken from the Cherokee including Kituwah. Just within the last 25 years, the land has been returned to the people. Today, it is many acres of farmland, although there is no village, the People use the lands for gardens, dancing ceremonies, and other important events. The race will start and finishes on the beautiful Kituwah Mound site, so come and enjoy this beautiful course.

Please join us following the run and awards for fellowship as we celebrate National Recovery Month.

We encourage those who are in recovery to share, and families and/or allies to share why they have a heart to spread hope within the recovery community.
We now have a virtual option! This virtual event will allow participants to run or walk at any time and any location that is convenient for you and your families! You don't have to miss out on any of the fun just because you don't live here :) You can still sign up whether you are an avid runner, or if you just want to be able to move your body for the cause...
