Rise Up Against Addiction 5K Run/Walk: New York City supporting Shatterproof

About Rise Up Against Addiction 5K Run/Walk: New York City

You united with more than 2,250 other walkers and runners to bring the disease of addiction into the light. You honored lost loved ones, celebrated recovery journeys, and connected with families affected by substance use disorder. Many of you walked and many of you ran. All of you came together to shatter the stigma of addiction.

You also helped us beat our fundraising goal of $565,000! Thank you so much! These funds will go a long way to support families, bolster advocacy efforts, and provide evidence-based resources. Want to keep fundraising? Share your experience with your family and friends and give them another opportunity to support you.

We captured many great team photos on 5K day, which you can view here. Enjoy! Also, if you ran the 5K, get your race results here.
