AFAR to host 5K run for recovery

Event aims to help people in recovery stay sober and safe

Saturday, Sept. 29 AFAR will host a 5k run to assist with their efforts to help people who are in recovery. The event will take place at the Burlington County Fairgrounds.

AFAR, which stands for “A Future After Rehab,” works to provide just that. They are a non-profit organization that hopes to ensure a safe and supportive transition into a life of sobriety for people who are re-entering society after rehab. Safe housing and employment opportunities can mean the difference between life and death for some people.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the run is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. Those who wish to participate but don’t feel up for a 5k run can join in a one mile walk starting at 9:05 a.m.
