We have been helping people with their mental health recovery in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area for more than 20 years. 

With the support of community members like you, we have begun taking steps to impact even more lives. With your 5K registration, you will be supporting access to both virtual and in person programs, education support, vocational opportunities, and many other recovery resources.

Your team must consist of four or more before registration closes in order to qualify for the team discount of $5 per person. Team members 1-3 will receive a $5 refund once member 4 joins.
