Today we are launching the fundraising drive for the sixth annual Recovery Games to be held on the 16th August 2019.
Hosted by Aspire, a partnership between RDaSH and ADS, the games are now an established fixture in the UK Recovery Calendar. Taking place at a local water park near Doncaster attendance has grown year on year with over 750 people joining us in 2018.
The Games offer visible evidence that recovery does and can happen. Every person taking part is on their own recovery journey or is a friend or family member of someone who is. Based around the It’s a Knockout format teams take part in trials throughout the day. The day culminates with a final obstacle course race to decide the winners.
Costing £12,000 to host this year we are beginning the fundraising for in earnest. If you can we would really appreciate your support for this amazing event.
