COLORADO SPRINGS — September is national recovery month and now a symbolic community event celebrating addiction recovery and awareness. More than 75 people gathered in the pre-dawn hours of downtown Colorado Springs this morning for the "Face it together" inaugural march into the light event.
The day began with a one-mile sunrise walk and continued with a 5k run, march, and fun run.
Speakers at the event included the Colorado Springs Police Department Commander, Rafael Chanza and the CEO of G.E. Johnson Construction Company, Jim Johnson.
The event is a reminder to those who have come so far.
