San Diego CA— McAlister Institute, a leading provider of professional services that heal the lives of individuals and families and improves the quality of life in communities through the miracle of recovery, will host its 9th Annual 5K Walk for Sobriety on Saturday, September 25th at NTC Park at Liberty Station (2455 Cushing Rd., San Diego, CA 92106).
The community is invited to join the organization and its supporters for a fun and uplifting celebration that brings help and hope to thousands of individuals and families impacted by addiction. The signature event will also feature a Recovery and Community Resource Fair, silent auctions, raffles, fun and games, music, and a Fitness Dance Warm Up before the Walk begins.
“Our Walk for Sobriety celebrates a clean and sober lifestyle and honors our years of serving the San Diego community,” said Jeanne McAlister, founder and CEO of McAlister Institute. “Each of us at McAlister Institute are dedicated to helping individuals regain their lives by supporting the recovery process. Each success story begins with a single day of sobriety and this Walk is an opportunity to celebrate that journey.” At 89 years old, McAlister is dedicated to celebrating every day of sobriety. The beloved community icon celebrated being 64 years sober in November 2020.
Participating walkers are encouraged to show why sobriety is worth celebrating by wearing the number of days that they have been clean and sober and what it means to them or share why they are a supporter and wear the number of days of sobriety of a loved one.
