OUR PARTNER: Ultrafit-USA has teamed up with GARRETT RECOVERY for the 2021 Zoo Run 5K event!
Who is Garrett Recovery? GR is a grassroots organization founded in 2017 to provide transitional housing to women in recovery. They have expanded and in February of 2020 the HOPE Resource Center was opened. They provide clothing, meals, health care and support for those living in active addiction. Most importantly the staff connects clients to resources that will help them in their next step of their journey to recovery. HOPE is located on Sullivant Ave in the heart of west Columbus neighborhood 'The Hilltop' which has seen the highest number of deaths due to overdose in the past 3 years.
Garrett works tirelessly every day to meet the needs of these lost and forgotten men & women, but they need our help. If you are able to provide a cash donation, know that every dollar helps. Or you may bring the following much needed items to the race and we will provide them to the organization.
Items of current need: Travel size toiletries, deodorant, feminine wipes, new or gently sneakers, flip flops, underwear, shorts, joggers, jeans, leggings, (clothing items are needed for both WOMEN & MEN) grocery store plastic bags, backpacks and drawstring bags (like those issued as swag bags for many race events). In addition, fruit cups, chewy granola bars and snack size chips etc are also needed.

Anyone that donates (cash or items) to our partner Garrett Recovery will be eligible to win a free Ultrafit-USA race including any of our remaining 2021 events or any we hold in 2022, or receive a refund for this Zoo Run 5K event.
