Road to Recovery Walk/Run reaches new heights

Under perfectly sunny skies, a record number of walkers participated in Renascent’s 2023 Road to Recovery Walk/Run. The annual fundraising event was a great success, surpassing its fundraising goal by raising an incredible $12,300.

The group walk, which was held on June 10 at Tommy Thompson Park in Toronto, saw a record number of teams and participants. Attendees completed a five kilometer walk, which provided stunning views of Toronto’s skyline. Afterwards participants were invited to enjoy lunch at the Keating Pub and Grill, located on the city’s waterfront.

“We are incredibly grateful for this event’s many participants and donors, who raised funds that Renascent will use toward our life-changing programs,” said Laura Bhoi, CEO, Renascent. “The importance of this cause and the impact of our supporters cannot be understated. Everyone’s tremendous efforts and their donations help us ensure that the cost of treatment is not a barrier for those who need addiction treatment.”

Participants had the opportunity to fundraise for the walk/run from June 1-30, with all funds raised being used to support the recovery of people who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

More than 20 teams fundraised this year. Our top fundraiser was Leah B., who raised $1,225. Leah was inspired to participate in Road to Recovery in honour of her late ex-husband whose death was a direct result of addiction. As the top fundraiser, Leah has won two guest passes, courtesy of Little Canada.

“We are overwhelmed by everyone’s outstanding support and commitment to this event. Now in its fourth year, it warms our hearts to see Road to Recovery Walk/Run grow in size each year,” said Tania Archer, Director of Business Development and Philanthropy. “We are grateful to all of the alumni, donors, family members, and staff who made the day memorable.”

Since Road to Recovery’s started, the event has raised more than $105,000 for Renascent’s Mission.
