Renascent Foundation Inc.



Running the Road to Recovery

Renascent is committed to ensuring that no one is ever denied life-changing treatment for alcohol or drug addiction due to an inability to pay. By running and walking together, we can help make treatment available to many people, changing not only their lives, but also the lives of their families and children.

What can you do?

  1. Run with us! Raise a minimum of $250 in donations and we will cover your registration fee. Not up to a half or full marathon? There's a 5 KM walk/run too!
  2. Support a runner! Pledge any amount towards the Renascent Runner in your life.
  3. Support Renascent! Donate directly and help us provide treatment to those who need us most.

About Renascent

Since 1970, Renascent has helped over 40,000 people reclaim their lives from alcohol and drug addition through abstinence-based 12 step treatment and care. Renascent is one of the largest treatment centres in Canada, operating on a continuous intake basis. No spaces are left empty in our centres for men and women.

And Renascent doesn't just treat the addict — we support the distinct needs of children and families and aid them in their own recovery from their loved ones' addiction.

“All the counselors, staff, and friends I've had the pleasure of meeting have had the profound impact that is driven me to maintain sobriety. They've gone above and beyond to help me, and for that I'm eternally grateful.”
— Lee K., Renascent Alumus
