Walk For Sobriety

McAlister Institute will hold its 11th Annual 5K Walk for Sobriety on Saturday, September 30, 2023, at NTC Park at Liberty Station. The Walk is an opportunity to bring help and hope to thousands of individuals and families braving the unforgiving cycle of addiction.

All proceeds from the Walk for Sobriety benefit McAlister Institute, one of San Diego’s leading resources for individuals and families impacted by addiction.

The pet-friendly event welcomes walkers, runners, and online supporters to help spread a powerful message on the day of the Walk by wearing the number of days they—or their loved ones—have been clean and sober, and what it means to them.
