Tribes of the recovering community

6000 participants

Phoenix Multisport has been featured here before.

They describe their community this way:

Our mission is to foster a supportive, physically active community for individuals who are recovering from alcohol and substance abuse and for those who choose to live a sober life. Through such pursuits as climbing, hiking, running, swimming, road and mountain biking, and other activities, we seek to help our members develop and maintain the emotional strength they need to stay sober.

We choose activities which we believe have inherent transformative properties, then introduce people to these in a safe, supportive setting. By giving people the tools to participate in and empowering them to excel at new endeavors, we help build confidence and self-worth, while creating sober social networks in which they can comfortably push their boundaries, make new friends, and learn about themselves.

The core of what Phoenix Multisport does is to provide access to numerous different activities for participants of all skill levels. These events are offered at many different times and locations, and at no cost to participants, in order to minimize barriers to participation due to schedule or financial issues. We offer activities in a broad range of intensity, from board games and crafts nights to several-day camping and climbing trips.
