Event Description: 
ABOUT THE RACE The Malibu Heroes in Recovery 6K is a unique run/walk presented by The Canyon and Foundations L.A., an outpatient treatment center of Foundations Recovery Network. Foundations Recovery Network’s mission is to be the leader in evidence-based, integrated treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders through clinical services, education and research. The Heroes in Recovery movement started because, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 20 million people needed substance abuse treatment last year and did not receive it. About 10 million Americans did not receive needed mental healthcare. The stigma associated with substance abuse and mental health disorders creates a significant barrier to individuals and families seeking help. It takes a heroic effort to live clean and sober each day, and Heroes celebrates that effort. The sixth kilometer separates a Heroes 6K race from a typical 5K to symbolize the extra effort it takes to sustain recovery. The six kilometers also represent the six letters in the word HEROES. These races inspire communities to support recovery, and they also encourage people to live healthy, active lifestyles. Each registered participant will receive: A finisher’s medal upon crossing the finish line! Race tech tank (women’s/men’s specific) Souvenir bib Re-usable 6K bag Post race nutrition*
