The 6th annual Run for Recovery & Tribute was held virtually for the second year in a row
Friday, May 14 through Sunday, May 16, 2021 with 744 registered runners ranging from age 10 to 77. The weekend kicked off Friday morning with Boston Bulldogs members snapping pictures and tagging on social media. All weekend long, teams ran and walked together with friends, family, children, coworkers, and pets. We paid tribute to those lost to addiction and their families and friends, this year we honored the memory of Sean Staunton with a moving tribute from his family.
Congratulations to all the 2021 finishers.

The 2021 Run for Recovery & Tribute was success by every measure.
