The 2nd Annual Rothenberger Road to Recovery Run presented by the Phoenix Athletic Club and Friends of Recovery of Delaware and Otsego Counties (FOR-DO) is coming up on August 31, starting and ending in Oneonta's Neahwa Park.

This event is held in memory of Oneonta's Lucas Rothenberger and all those who have lost their lives to addiction or are still sick and suffering. Funds raised will go toward FOR-DO programs that assist people in recovery from addictions and support FOR-DO's mission to reduce the stigma surrounding addiction and recovery.

- A 1K Color Walk (starting at 9:15 a.m.)
- A 5K Color Run (starting at 9:15 a.m.)
- Kids Run and Walk (starting at 9:15 a.m.)
