The Recovery Games 2018

Help us to celebrate Recovery! Please help us to raise money to host our fifth “Recovery Games” in which we celebrate the gains made by those in recovery from drug and/or alcohol use. Hosted by our services in The Humber and Yorkshire Region, The Recovery Games offer an exciting platform for people in treatment and recovery, those working with them along with friends, family and other members of the community they live in to have fun and build on the principles of connecting with each other in new ways without substances. This is a one day event, hosted at the local waterpark in Doncaster and planned for Summer 2018. Teams from all parts of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Lancashire will be invited to enter events throughout the day. Competitors will take part in events such as canoeing, climbing and many other events on giant inflatable arenas. Year on year we have seen in excess of 600 people attend. In 2017 over 600 people joined us and took part in our fantastic colour run and games.
 

No matter how big or small the donation, all contributions will make a lasting difference to those affected by substance misuse. Recovery becomes contagious within communities when it’s visible, when it’s seen and felt. Such events bring together the recovery community, re-enforce existing networks and build new ones. They also provide fun not only for those in recovery, but for their friends, families and the local community.
Please support us and become a part of this fantastic event!
