Get all the event-day details HERE, and join us on Saturday, June 17 at NTC Park in Liberty Station (2455 Cushing Road, San Diego, CA 92106). Our celebration starts at 8:00am, and the 5K "fun run" kicks off at 9:00am!

The Walk for Sobriety is an opportunity to bring help and hope to thousands of individuals and families braving the unforgiving cycle of addiction. 

Our goal is to save lives and beat addiction by illuminating the path to recovery and ensuring affordable, quality treatment for every individual and family who needs us.

All proceeds from the Walk for Sobriety benefit McAlister Institute, one of San Diego's leading resources for individuals and families impacted by addiction. Your tax-deductible donation helps bring life-saving services in substance abuse treatment, mental health counseling, life skills education, and vocational training to individuals who could not otherwise afford help. 

Since launching the Walk for Sobriety in 2012, incredible supporters like you have helped raise more than $200,000 to help McAlister Institute provide life-saving treatment to more than 30,000 individuals and families struggling with addiction.

We’ve made a positive difference in thousands of lives, but our work to end the epidemic is just beginning. We need your help. Here’s how:


To be a part of McAlister Institute's 5th Annual 5K Walk for Sobriety, click "Join Now" in the upper right-hand corner. In a few easy steps, you can register for the walk, create/join a team, and build a page where you can share your story and help fundraise for McAlister Institute.  


Whether you are in recovery or know someone who has been affected by addiction, your story and your support can inspire change. Personal fundraising pages are a great way to tell your story, but you can join us in whatever way is meaningful to you. This year, we are encouraging walkers, runners, and online supporters to download this sign to show us what you celebrate – it could be the number of days you have clean and sober, someone you support in recovery, or anything you are proud of! Join the conversation by sharing a photo of you and your sign(s) with the hashtag #walkforsobriety.


If you're here to support one of our amazing fundraisers, please make sure to visit their page where you can make a tax-deductible donation to help them reach their fundraising goal! If you prefer the old fashion way, you can complete this form and send it back to us with their name/team on the "in support of" line. We'll let your fundraiser know about your awesome donation and update his/her page with your generous contribution!
