The cure to darkness is light. 
The cure to stigma is love. 
The cure to despair is hope. 
It’s time to Rise Up Against Addiction. 

Whether you've had a substance use disorder or have watched someone you care about struggle with this disease, join us to show that no one should ever suffer alone. Unite in solidarity with other walkers and runners, supporting those who have lost a loved one to addiction and celebrating those who are living in recovery today. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer to ending the devastation of addiction in America.

Together, we will reduce the secrecy and remove the shame. Together, we will walk into the light and change the conversation about addiction.
