ABOUT THE RACE The Memphis Heroes race is a unique 6K run/walk presented by The Oaks at La Paloma and Foundations Memphis, 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. Heroes in Recovery has a simple mission: to eliminate the social stigma that keeps individuals with addiction and mental health issues from seeking help, to share stories of recovery for the purpose of encouragement and inspiration, and to create an engaged sober community that empowers people to get involved, give back, and live healthy, active lives. It takes a heroic effort to live clean and sober each day, and a Heroes 6K celebrates that effort. The sixth kilometer separates a Heroes 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. Each registered participant will receive: A finisher’s medal upon crossing the finish line! Heroes 6K race shirt Souvenir bib Re-usable 6K bag Post race nutrition
