Bring your family and friends to join in this celebration of Recovery and Hope. We hear much in our society about daily losses from addiction and mental health issues. The Hope Runs for Recovery event brings light to the truth that recovery from these issues is possible and happens on a large scale every day! Our 5k Walk/Run will be held on the beautiful Irwin Creek Greenway. The entry at Clanton Park will be the setting for an after-party celebration with a live band, food, and give-aways by recovery supporters and providers in our community. 

Proceeds will benefit the Herren Project, and the Emerald School of Excellence.

Herren Project is a non-profit founded by former NBA player Chris Herren, and provides individual and family support, treatment and recovery navigation, and prevention and outreach services utilizing networked resources across the country. 


The Emerald School of Excellence is North Carolina’s 1st recovery high school, opening for it’s first school year in the fall of 2019 in Charlotte. The school is founded by visionary Mary Ferrari who sought to fill a gap in services for youth and their families impacted by substance use disorder and other mental health issues. 



Omega will give prizes to top 3 in male and female overall, then 1st place in all the age group awards, male and female.


We have additional awards for 2nd and 3rd place in the age groups –
