The 2020 5K Forward for Recovery is the North Country’s premiere event to celebrate recovery and support substance use prevention. This year, money raised through sponsorships and our race will help fund Champlain Valley Family Center’s program supporting youth transitioning into middle school. The program pairs evidence-based practices and adventure-based learning for a full week of skill-building during the summer and five weekly group sessions during the school year to foster a healthy school transition, and reduce risk for substance use.  Your participation will provide funding for approximately 50 participants in 2020. Your sponsorship will help CVFC prevent substance use in Clinton County.

On the day of the race, check-in will begin at 8:00am with the race beginning at 9:15am.   The registration fee for the 5KFWD for Recovery is $20 paid online or by cash or check at CVFC, 20 Ampersand Dr. Plattsburgh prior to the event.  On-site registration is $25.  Registration for the race includes a 5KFWD t-shirt, race packet and bib number.  Registration will continue up to the day of the event, but shirt sizes will not be guaranteed for those registering after May 22.  5KFWD medals will be awarded to all participants.  Prizes will also be awarded to the top overall male and female racer.

The 5KFWD includes fun for the entire family with games and activities for kids, face painting, music and refreshments.
