Run/walk to benefit Therapeutic Activities Fund for people in recovery from substance use
The event will begin at 10 a.m. at the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail - Scranton Half Marathon Pavilion in Scranton.
Race proceeds benefit the Geisinger Marworth Therapeutic Activities Fund, which provides recreation programs and facilities that help patients experience healthy leisure and gain sober social skills to support them in their recovery after they leave treatment.
“Participating in the Geisinger Marworth Recovery Fun Run can make a direct impact on the lives of people dealing with addiction,” said Michael Ogden, Marworth’s executive director. “Whether you’re a seasoned runner, a casual jogger, or simply someone who wants to support a great cause, this event welcomes everyone. Together, we can create a healthier and happier future for all.”
Participants can register online ($25) or on site the day of the event from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m. ($30). Registration cost includes a t-shirt. Medals will be awarded to age group winners, and a prize raffle will be held at the end of the event.
