Running for Recovery

Team Mission fights homelessness and addiction through fitness and community. Joining with community volunteers, we provide training, support, and a close-knit team environment for men and women in Mission recovery programs. 

“I’ve built a lot of relationships while running. This has been a team where I've gotten so much support and love and lots of great friends. I don't know what my sobriety would look like if I weren't running … I love Team Mission!” — Laura Feet, Mission graduate and Team Mission member

We see fitness as an integral part of the recovery process: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Team Mission focuses on building and sustaining a community for all members, providing a place where we support and encourage one another, regardless of position or status in life. We find that running, jogging, or walking is a great equalizer!

We're looking for energetic volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of men and women in Mission recovery programs. Whether you are in great shape or even just beginning to get in shape, your communication, listening, and fitness skills will be valued and appreciated. Sign up to volunteer and take part in transforming lives one step...or one run...at a time!

Couch to 5K

Many of the men and women in recovery at the Mission are in what fitness experts call detrained condition. With this in mind, Team Mission offers four quarterly “Couch to 5K” training sessions followed by a 5K event. We highly encourage community members to come and join us during the training to help encourage these men and women. It may also be an opportunity to jog or run your first 5K right next to our team members!

We offer a 9-week training plan designed to show participants that running does not need to be painful and time-consuming: it can be rewarding! This 5K training program will deliver results that Team Mission members can really see and use in a 5K event. Get your workout plan now!
