Recovery Point and the Putnam County Adult Drug Court will host a kickball tournament and lunch at Valley Park in Hurricane May 7.

The name of the event is “Kick Addiction and Run toward Recovery.”

Recovery Point and Putnam County Adult Drug Court both help combat prescription drug abuse by helping addicts achieve recovery and live normal lives.

Marshall student Tristan Ersek said he is familiar with the drug epidemic and thinks its great that these two organizations are heavily involved in combatting drug abuse.

“If we start to see a trend in community organizations like these two come together more often we will beat this epidemic sooner rather than later,” Ersek said.

This family-friendly event will feature celebrity referees, a 50/50 raffle and a drug take-back hosted by the Putnam County Sherriff’s Office.

The cost is $5 per person to be on a team, for a total of $40.

The event is open and free to the public.

Recovery Point representatives said they the event will reunite families and communities.

Recovery Point intern Christi Rosata said this event is geared to bring everyone together.

“This is a chance for the clients to have fun as well as everyone from Putnam County Adult Drug court”, Rosata said.

The event starts at noon and ends at 4 p.m. at Valley Park in Hurricane, West Virginia.
