11th Annual Recovery Walk 5K Run - 1 Mile Walk - Virtual 5K
Why Walk for Recovery?
For more than 35 years, the Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery (IIAR) has touched thousands affected by the disease of addiction. We provide treatment with dignity and respect to the patient and their family that literally changes lives. Some patients have insurance coverage and family support to help them pay for these intensive services. Others are ready to make a change but do not have the financial resources to make it happen. Our Ameel Rashid Scholarship for Addiction Recovery helps make their dreams of a new life possible.
You can make all the difference!
We need your help to remove barriers to recovery and open new doors for those still struggling with addiction. Help support the IIAR and the Ameel Rashid scholarship fund by participating in our 5K Run, 1 Mile Walk or Virtual 5K.
