As part of National Prevention Week (NPW)’s new Storytelling Series, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and LMSvoice is launching Disrupting the Narrative, a nationwide storytelling challenge just for young adults and adults working with youth-serving organizations. This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with an award-winning professional storyteller and have your story featured during a national Mobilize Recovery 2023 event in Washington, D.C. Mobilize Recovery features Grammy award winning artist Macklemore this year!
By sponsoring this year's R5k, you will be helping us in our goal to normalize and highlight recovery in the Reno/Sparks community. Your financial contribution will help support students who identify as being in recovery or those students choosing a substance-free lifestyle have a positive experience while attending the University and strengthen NRAP’s ability to change the stigma associated with non-substance use on our college campuses.
International Overdose Awareness Day remembers those lost to overdose, acknowledges the grief loved ones left behind, reduces the stigma of drug related deaths, and reduces the impact of overdose. Join us in honoring those who have been lost to drug overdose on August 26th from 2pm-6pm.

A portion of ticket sales will be donated to Reps4Recovery’s scholarship program. Come have some fun and enjoy an evening at the Aces ballpark while supporting healthy, accessible resources for our greater community. Now, THAT’S a doubleheader!
On June 8, 2023, Governor Joe Lombardo signed A.B. 140 into law. This legislation included Juneteenth in the list of legal holidays in Nevada. Effective immediately, Juneteenth will be observed on June 19 of each year as a legal state holiday for the State of Nevada. If June 19 falls on a Sunday, the Monday following will be observed as the legal Juneteenth holiday. If June 19 falls on a Saturday, the Friday preceding will be observed as the legal Juneteenth holiday.   Since A.B. 140 was effective upon passage and approval, the Juneteenth holiday will be recognized this month on Monday, June 19, 2023. Therefore, University of Nevada, Reno offices will be closed and no classes will be held this day.
