We help people learn how to use group exercise to overcome addiction and mental health struggles.
We were founded in 2016 when a friend of our founder lost his son to heroin.
We meet weekly at 9 different locations in the Akron, OH area to walk/run/workout and connect with over 130 people. All fitness levels are welcome. During the winter months, we move into local gym/rec centers. All programs are free but we ask that folks donate what they can afford. When people come to 3 meetings we give them a pair of running shoes and we also provide apparel and race entries.
Exercise has been shown in numerous studies to lessen depression/anxiety, improve memory and cognition, and reduce cravings.
#activatehappy is our hashtag because when we're active, we're more content.
