It was a bright, sunny, humid morning at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. The sound of women, men and children talking, and laughing could be heard echoing throughout the Zoo. Volunteers and staff from Recovery Resources were gearing up for the 4th Annual Run for Recovery activities. Pam Gill, President and CEO of Recovery Resources welcomed everyone and Brittnie Price sang an impressive National Anthem to kick off the event. Eighteen cute, energetic kids lined up at the start line for the Kids fun run. 3…2…1…and they were off! They made a mad dash to the finish line. Each winner was awarded with a medal - medal Then it was time for the 5K run. 173 enthusiastic runners gathered at the start line. Once they heard the word GO, they were off! As they raced through the Zoo, 137 walkers joined them on the course. Very quickly, runners and walkers crossed the finish line as friends and family cheered them on. Medals were given to the top female and male runners, and the top three male and female runners in seven age groups. The 4th Annual Run for Recovery was an incredible success and demonstrated our commitment to our community. An impressive $58,577 was raised to support Recovery Resources programs and clients!
