Second Annual Citywide 5k Walk for Recovery

The walk starts at DCR Artesani/Herter Park in Brighton on September 16 at 9 a.m.

This event is part of the City of Boston's Recovery Month programming for September 2017. We have a robust schedule of recovery events throughout the month of September. These events aim to combat social stigma, celebrate recovery, and promote overall awareness.

“Recovery Month is a time where the City of Boston celebrates and actively promotes Boston’s outstanding recovery community,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “Recovery allies and individuals in recovery embody resilience and exemplify that no one is beyond hope.”

Recovery Month events are organized or co-organized by the City of Boston. All are free and open to the public:
