Why We Run:
When someone breaks their arm, they go to the doctor. When someone needs their wisdom teeth pulled, they go to the dentist. This is considered normal, and no one blames them for needing help. Why isn’t this the case for depression? Chemical dependency? Problem gambling? So often, people don’t seek help for these problems because they are afraid of the social repercussions that usually follow: stigma, shame, and blame. By holding the Run for Recovery, we hope to destigmatize getting help for these problems by connecting those in recovery with others, bring awareness to recovery, and show that it is possible. We see it every day.
