7th Annual 5K Run for Recovery

Celebrating National Recovery Month and Featuring Freedom Recovery

September was National Recovery Month and in keeping with tradition, Truly Motivated hosted its 7th Annual 5K Run. Every year, all across the nation, various providers, individuals, supporters and organizations join together to both celebrate and relay the message that people can and do recover from mental health and substance use disorders. The Run was one of nine such events held across the state and on of 60 Run/Walk events held across the country throughout the month. Here's some highlights from the event:

This year we had 75 preregistered runners - Almost 85% of which were new attendees!

Together we raised just over $4,000!

Cash Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were awarded - 2nd Place was a Truly Motivated Resident!

One of our youngest participants - Tristin Hansen finished the 5K in 14th place with a 29:33 run time!

This year we invited our new friends over at Freedom Recovery Centers to join us as well. Owner Robert Long and his team attended and were introduced to the community as the city of Yelm's newest providers of outpatient drug and alcohol treatment providers. We are confident that Freedom Recovery Centers will prove to be an invaluable asset to our community, being the first providers to bring services for teens struggling with substance abuse to Yelm. We look forward to a solid partnership with Rob in coming years!

Participants and attendees had 7 Amazing Raffle Baskets to choose from thanks to:

Yelm Starbucks

Cascades Camp and Conference Center

FitStop24's Lacey Johnson and Justin Hickman

Rainier Chiropractic


Sara Ward's Hands of Serenity Massage

AND an Amazing Seahawks Jacket was Auctioned off for $150!
