Run/walk to benefit Therapeutic Activities Fund for people in recovery from substance use

DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger Marworth will hold its annual Recovery Fun Run, featuring a 5K run and 1-mile walk, on Sunday, Sept. 10.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. at the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail - Scranton Half Marathon Pavilion in Scranton.
