Utah’s recovery community will join in celebrating National Recovery Month by highlighting four dimensions that support a life in recovery from substance use disorders: health, home, community, and purpose. Recovery Day celebration supports and empowers individuals in recovery and recognizes the contributions of family members, service providers, and allies who come together to raise awareness that together we can recover from addiction by creating hope, healing, and health through many pathways.
Salt Lake City's Recovery Day event will be held on September 8 from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Gallivan Center. The day includes a 5K Run for Recovery, sponsor and vendor exhibits, speakers, live music, food trucks, and an area with fun activities for kids! This nationally awarded event is free and open to the public.
The Run for Recovery is a 5K race that goes from the Gallivan Center to Memory Grove and back. On-site run registration begins at 8 AM. You can avoid the line by registering in advance online. Race packets will be available for pickup at USARA's offices on Friday, September 7, 2018 from 10 AM to 4 PM or on the morning of the Run at Gallivan Plaza from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM.
