Walkers may have raised $5,000

Greg Moberly

Saturday’s Walk for Recovery potentially raised as much as $5,000 to help people in their first year of recuperation from alcohol and drug abuse, the event’s organizer said Monday.

Although they hadn’t completed the tally, members of the Recovery Alumni Association, which organized the event, hoped for about $5,000, said the nonprofit’s president, Bob Rogers.

The event’s second year featured about 100 participants who walked from Pioneer Park in Nevada City to the Nevada County Courthouse in the city’s downtown area. Participants finished the walk by returning to Pioneer Park where they had a barbecue, Rogers said.

Information about support for victims of domestic violence and for people suffering from depression and bipolar disorder also was available at the park.
