Heroes in Recovery, a movement celebrating the heroic efforts of those who seek addiction and mental health treatment, has announced that one of its family-friendly 6K (3.728 mile) Run/Walk events will be held in South Florida. The goal of the race is to garner support for people in recovery and to educate the community at large about behavioral health issues. The Heroes in Recovery movement, ignited by Foundations Recovery Network (FRN), has been carried on the shoulders of supporters, advocates, friends, family members and all those touched by the disease of addiction.

This Heroes in Recovery event is the ninth race since 2011 in a series of 6K races being held across the country to raise awareness and destigmatize addiction treatment and recovery.

Medivance Billing Service is the title sponsor of the Heroes in Recovery 6K Run/Walk, which will be held on Saturday, April 27, at 7:00 a.m. in Coconut Creek, Fla.

The charity beneficiary for this race is Mount Bethel Human Services, which is a 501c3 faith-based organization founded in 1993 due to the over-representation of minorities in the juvenile justice system.
