Thousands will gather on September 25, 2010 for the 3rd Annual New York Recovery Rally in Randall’s Island Park to celebrate recovery from addiction.
Fun, family activities begin in Icahn Stadium at 8:00 a.m., leading to the day’s kick-off event at 10:00 a.m.: the Odyssey House 5th Annual “Run for Your Life.” The Odyssey House event will be followed directly by a historic, unified “Recovery Celebration Walk” along the scenic Harlem River with a view of the Manhattan skyline, where–like last year’s inspirational A&E Recovery Rally–thousands will walk side by side, as one strong and courageous voice for recovery.
The Recovery Celebration Walk will lead into the Harlem River Event Site for a jam-packed lineup of inspirational speakers, entertainment and activities, surrounded by vendor booths. Join us as we celebrate individuals and families in recovery; honor organizations providing prevention, treatment and recovery services; and offer a beacon of hope and support for those still in need of hope and help.
Open to the public; families and individuals in recovery; friends, advocates and supporters of recovery; service providers; health and human service professionals
