Event details and schedule
The 2017 Charity Beneficiary
The charity beneficiary for the 2017 Arizona Heroes in Recovery 6K is Step One, Inc. Step One’s mission is to introduce a 12-Step-based program to newly sober individuals in a clean, safe environment. People rarely quit abusing drugs and alcohol without getting the proper care and support, but many people cannot afford to go to a rehab facility. This is where Step One offers support with a 90-day treatment program that requires clients to get a 12-Step sponsor and attend one 12-Step meeting daily. Clients must also be willing to get a home group and a service commitment. All of Step One’s staff members are in recovery and are more than willing to teach new clients about how the program works.
Please consider partnering with us in supporting this local non-profit organization. Give a donation, any amount is appreciated and become a fundraising participant to get others involved in supporting our mission for the recovery community.
Be a Volunteer
Interested in helping out at the Heroes 6K Run/Walk in Gilbert, AZ? Volunteers have the option to run the race, too! Each volunteer will receive a Heroes volunteer shirt at check-in.
