Last month Cornerstone Care Centers was presented with the exciting opportunity of co-sponsoring the Road to Recovery 5K in San Francisco! Many of our board members and volunteers flew in from around the country to be able to run in the event and we had a lot of fun! The Run was held on a beautiful spring Sunday morning; on a rare crystal-clear sunny day in Crissy Field. The weather was the perfect temperature for a run; in fact, we couldn’t have asked for better!
The Center for Open Recovery hosted event event with the goal of providing an opportunity for members of the recovery community to come together to celebrate recovery and raise awareness of the disease of addiction. Several speakers, including a former celebrity athlete, took to the stage to speak openly about their struggles achieving sobriety. It was inspiring to see so many brave people rallying to lessen the stigma of addiction.
We’re grateful to have been given the opportunity to participate in such an important—and historical—event. We hope we’ll get a chance to sponsor more recovery events in the future!
