Event celebrates recovery and 40th anniversary

WAVERLY, Pa. – Geisinger Marworth Treatment Center is hosting its 40th Anniversary
Celebration of Recovery Fun Run/Walk on Sunday, Aug. 28, at the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail, Scranton Half Marathon Pavilion. 

This annual event, which has been held virtually the past two years, is back in person for the 5K run/1-mile walk. Race proceeds will benefit the Geisinger Marworth Therapeutic Activities Fund, which supports programs that help patients enjoy healthy leisure and gain sober social skills after discharge. Medals will be awarded for top runners in male and female age groups as well as a prize raffle.

“The event is truly a celebration of recovery, highlighting Marworth’s work, which has helped more than 40,000 patients overcome addiction,” said Jennifer Ronczka, operations manager for northeast region addiction medicine. “It brings together those who have recovered, family members and friends of those who’ve had addiction, community members — everyone. It’s for such a great cause and always a fun event for all who participate.”

Check-in will be held from 8:30 – 9:45 a.m. with the race beginning at 10 a.m. The $30 entry fee includes a t-shirt while supplies last. Register online at If you would like to give an additional donation to help support the Marworth Therapeutic Activities Fund, visit
