Immersion Recovery Center is partnering with The Herren Project, a non-profit addiction recovery foundation, to run in the 2018 New Balance Falmouth Road Race and raise awareness for the disease of addiction. The 7-mile “fun run,” which regularly draws more than 11,000 runners, will be held Sunday, Aug. 19, 2018 at 9 a.m. in Falmouth, Mass.
This is the second year members of the Immersion team will participate in the Falmouth Road Race, an event that is personal for members of the Immersion family. Many team members have waged a personal battle with addiction and received a second chance, thanks to the treatment they received. The race offers an opportunity to pay it forward, raise awareness and have fun.
“Our Immersion Recovery Center team has chosen to unite again and run in honor of those who have lost their lives to drug and alcohol addiction,” said Justin Williams, Chief Financial Officer at Immersion Recovery Center. “As we continue to raise awareness for this disease, we aim to provide hope and healing to the lives we touch so that they, in turn, will spearhead the success stories of additional addicts in need,” Williams said.
Immersion is partnering with The Herren Project, non-profit foundation based in Portsmouth, R.I., that provides recovery navigation, support and wellness education to increase awareness and treatment of substance use disorder. Last year, the Immersion team raised $10,295 for The Herren Project, exceeding their original goal of $8,000.
This year, Team Immersion Recovery Center hopes to raise $15,000 to provide education and treatment services for people who need them.
