MARIETTA — Supporters, people in recovery and behavioral health providers gathered in East Muskingum Park on Saturday for the 3rd Annual Recovery Walk.

The event featured a two-mile walk, informational booths, free t-shirts and a produce stand.

Tara Plaugher, recovery advocate at the Washington County Behavioral Health Board, said the event honors National Recovery Month in September.

“The purpose of this event is to raise awareness for recovery, how beautiful it is and to help strengthen our recovery community, because we are growing, and we are contributing members of society and we’re doing our part,” she said.
