Chef Chris Bernier prepares lunch for hungry walkers and runners at last year’s event.

Celebrate Recovery Month with healthy activity!  On Saturday, September 20, Phoenix House New England will present the 2014 Phoenix House Runs and Walks–For the Health of It!, a fun-filled day of healthy outdoor activity on the beautiful grounds of Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts. Kicking off with registration at 9:00 AM, the day’s activities, all open to the public, will offer the choice of a 5K (3.1 mile) run or a 3K (1.8 mile) walk.  After working up a good appetite, all participants will be our guests for an old-fashioned barbecue lunch.

Registration for the event costs $25 per participant, $10 for each additional adult family member, and $5 for teens aged 12 to 18.  Children under 12 are free!  All proceeds from Phoenix House Runs and Walks support Phoenix House’s efforts to help individuals overcome one of the greatest threats to their lives: substance abuse. To register online, click here.

Forest Park, located on the banks of the Connecticut River in Springfield, Massachusetts, is one of the largest municipal parks in the United States.  In addition to walking/running trails, the park features a zoo, an ice skating and hockey rink, baseball diamonds, picnic areas, a rose garden, and a public swimming pool.
