Shine a Light on Problem Gambling Fun Run/Walk

September 17, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm EDT

On Saturday, September 17, 2022, from 10:30 am to 2 pm, the New York Council on Problem Gambling
(NYCPG) in partnership with its affiliate program, the Northeast Problem Gambling Resource Center (NE PGRC)
will be hosting our first ever “Shine a Light on Problem Gambling Recovery” One Mile Fun Run/Walk and
Awareness Event, in honor of Recovery Month and all NYS families impacted by
gambling disorder. The event will be held rain or shine at the Shenantaha Creek Park (Pavilion A) in Ballston

Our primary goal for this family friendly, fun run is to raise community awareness of problem gambling in NYS,
along with co-occurring addiction and mental health concerns. We aim to shine a light on this hidden
addiction (gambling) and proudly support those in recovery by sharing stories of hope. By educating others
that help is available and running/walking together, we can encourage a healthier lifestyle to show others the
many “pathways” to wellness. There will be information tables about community resources, music, games,
and fun for the whole family. All are welcome to join us.

We believe that recovery is for everyone because it benefits everyone – every person, every family, and every
