Road to Recovery Walk/Run is a fundraiser that helps to make addiction treatment more accessible to those who need care and it challenges the stigma associated with this deadly illness.

Every day in Ontario, an increasing number of families grieve the loss of a loved one to addiction. In Ontario alone, there continues to be a staggering rise in substance use and drug-related deaths. Substance use disorders were among the leading causes of illness for Canadians, affecting more people than heart disease and causing more hospitalizations than heart attacks and strokes combined.

While addiction is a devastating and deadly illness, recovery is possible. Help us make life-saving treatment more accessible for individuals and families.
