Please join us on Saturday, April 13, 2024 for the in-person Rage Against Addiction Memory Walk/ Recovery Run. Either run a timed 5K or join us for our Memory Walk! We will also be offering a virtual challenge during the entire month to see how many miles you can accumulate in April while helping us to provide awareness and support to anyone affected by the disease of addiction, including the family. You know someone battling addiction. We ALL do. We hope you will join us in person, virtually or both!


We are very excited to offer the in-person Rage Against Addiction Memory Walk/Recovery Run again this year!

We will gather on Saturday, April 13th at Cedar Lane Regional Park for this family-friendly event.  We will have various resources/speakers come out to share their knowledge and support services.

All registrants will receive a race number.  Please wear this number on the outer-most layer at the front of your torso. 
The 5K event will be chip-timed while the 1 Mile event is untimed.  Look for your 5K results after the event on the results tab of this page.

During the event, the park will remain open to the public and park rules apply.  This includes keeping the park clean by utilizing trash receptacles and all dogs must be leashed and cleaned up after.  Strollers are welcome, we ask that they line up towards the back of the start corral.  This is a two-loop course, so please stay to the right and allow for passing on the left.

Rage Against Addiction

Rage Against Addiction believes in Community, Sponsorship, and Teamwork. This organization has been built by those affected by addiction for those affected by addiction. So many people do not understand its impact until their loved one suffers. We are a no-judgment zone because we know that no family is immune to this powerful disease. We know we can’t go at it alone! We serve locally but think globally.

Mission Statement:  Rage Against Addiction provides awareness and support to anyone affected by the disease of addiction, including the family. 

  • Daughter's House: Dedicated to women’s recovery, this program is designed to assist women who are transitioning from substance abuse treatment to recovery; it includes three Level II Maryland Certification of Recovery Residence (MCORR) sober living houses (Daughter’s House, Sister House, and The Cottage) located in Harford County, MD. Each house is tailored to meet each individual’s needs.

  • HALO (How to Live Without Our Addicted Loved One): An online grief support group specifically for those who lost loved ones to substance abuse.  

  • RAA ABC (After Baby Care): Provides post-partum care packages for new mothers in early recovery.  

  • Sober Living Funding: provides financial support to qualified applicants in Maryland. Qualifications include but are not limited to verification and an interview. Availability is limited.
