3rd Annual New York Recovery Rally

Thousands gathered on September 25, 2010 for the 3rd Annual New York Recovery Rally in Randall's Island Park to celebrate recovery from addiction.

Fun, family activities began in Icahn Stadium at 8:00 a.m., leading to the day's kick-off event at 10:00 a.m.: the Odyssey House 5th Annual "Run for Your Life." The Odyssey House event was followed by the historic, unified "Recovery Celebration Walk" along the scenic Harlem River with a view of the Manhattan skyline, where thousands walked side by side, as one strong and courageous voice for recovery.

The Recovery Celebration Walk lead into the Harlem River Event Site for a jam-packed lineup of inspirational speakers, entertainment and activities, surrounded by vendor booths.
