10th Anniversary Recovery Challenge: May 20, 2023
Join us as we celebrate the 10th annual Recovery Challenge 5K and 1 Mile Family Fun Walk on Saturday, May 20, 2023. Held on IBH Addiction Recovery's campus, this year's Recovery Challenge will include special events as we celebrate a DECADE of fellowship and fun!
The road to recovery is traveled by many and presents obstacles for all. In recognizing the challenges of recovery, the Summit County ADM Support Committee invites you to participate in the annual ADM Recovery Challenge 5K fundraiser (part of the Ohio Challenge Subway Series). This course offers fun competition for athletes of all ages and abilities. Get set to tackle the challenges, cheer others on, and support those who are in recovery!
Couch to 5K
If you are new to running or you are looking for something to help with your recovery, replace bad habits for healthy ones, or just to get out and enjoy the fresh air, we want to help. Join the Running2Bwell Running Group at their group runs to get you on track on Mondays at Second Sole in Akron (down in the valley) at 6:30pm (or any of their group runs in Kent, Medina or Wadsworth). For the latest updates on group runs, please follow Running2bWell on Facebook.
Watch for posted times and places to meet for group runs on Running2bWell's Facebook page. If you are interested in doing a couch to 5k plan or you just want to meet new friends to run with, Running2bWell welcomes you!
Here's a sample 8 week training plan to get you started toward our finish line! (PDF)

Each year, over 26,000 Summit County residents and their families face the challenge of recovery from mental illness and addictions and turn to the ADM Board for treatment and support. The continuum of care runs throughout the lifespan – from services and programs for toddlers to older adults. It includes preventative and treatment services, housing support, employment assistance, respite, peer support, recreation, and educational services.
We are committed to meeting these needs in our community, but we cannot meet the challenge alone. Your generous sponsorship and participation benefits the Summit County ADM Support Committee, Inc. in its future levy campaign activities on behalf of the County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction & Mental Health Services (ADM) Board.
