This 5K Honor Run/Walk and 10K Road Race - the only Road Race in La Crosse County - is to honor those we may have lost to addiction, who are struggling in active addiction or those that are thriving in recovery!
Drug and alcohol substance abuse has touched many friends and families. More Wisconsinites are dying from drug overdoses (in 2019, 3.3 people per day) than in traffic accidents (in 2019, 1.5 people per day).
All of us have been touched in some way by addictions. Some in their pain still trapped in the addiction cycle, others working through stages of recovery, loved ones impacted by the effects of substance abuse and addictions, and those who are celebrating recovery.
Recovery from substance abuse and the cycle of addiction is achievable. This run celebrates the real possibility of living a full and wholesome life free from the addiction cycle and its destructive effects; restoration of body-mind-soul and healed relationships with a hope for a bright future.
Home Run for Recovery’s objectives: 1) raise awareness of what addiction is; 2) raise awareness of the Coulee Recovery Center and the resource that the agency can provide; and 3) raise funds to provide recovery support and relapse prevention programming.
Home Run for Recovery will be a 5K Run/Walk, 10K Road Race and Little Leaguer's race around the bases (for young kids) or around the warning track (older kids) of the Logger's Baseball Stadium.
All Races will lead off at home plate of the Logger's Stadium, Copeland Park, La Crosse, WI. As you return "Home" the crowd can watch you cross the finish line (or slide into home plate if you so desire) like their favorite Loggers on game day.
Participants in the 10K and 5K will receive a T-shirt with each registration. Stay for the little leaguers races where youth participants get a free Logger's baseball.
Races will be timed and results will be split into three categories for the top three men and women, who will be provided with an award:
ages 19 and under
40 and above
If register by August 19th you will be guaranteed a t-shirt with size specified.
