The Run for Recovery 5K is an annual run/walk supporting students in recovery from addictions and eating disorders and is hosted by Health Promotion and Wellness at Kennesaw State University.

The Run for Recovery is a kick-off event for National Recovery Month in September, during which hundreds of events across the country support “the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover” (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). National Recovery Month exists to increase the awareness and understanding of substance abuse issues and celebrate the people who recover. Health Promotion and Wellness wants to expand the reach to not only substance abuse, but also to those with eating disorders. We have resources available on campus to help those in recovery. Some of our program offerings include nutrition counseling and health promotion programs such as Love Your Body Week, Prescription Take Back Day, and National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week.
