Join Us For The 2nd Annual 'Fit To Be King' Gala - The Phoenix

Join Us For The 2nd Annual ‘Fit To Be King’ Gala

Please join us to support The Phoenix Tampa Bay mission and honor the legacy of our founding Chairperson, Guy King Ill. Countless people in Tampa Bay struggle with substance use. Addiction impacts us, either directly, or through friends, family, coworkers. But with the right support, people do recover, families are restored, and communities thrive. Through group fitness, meditation, running, climbing, hiking, dance, and other meaningful activities, The Phoenix combats the isolation, shame, and hopelessness that often surrounds substance use and perpetuates relapse. By supporting the Phoenix Tampa, you’ll fuel resilience and harness the transformational power of connection so that together, we rise, recover and live.

The Phoenix is an innovative nonprofit organization that helps people recover from substance use disorder and heal by leveraging the intrinsic transformative power of social connection and activity. Through fitness, meditation, book club, climbing, trivia, paddle boarding, yoga, bowling, and other meaningful activities, The Phoenix uses community and connection to break isolation and shame for those struggling with addiction or for those who just support our mission. The Phoenix’s mission is to be build a sober active community that fuels resilience and harnesses the transformational power of connection so that together we rise, recover, and live.

Join us as we expand the mission into our larger Tampa Bay area. Proceeds from the 2022 Fit to Be King Event have allowed us to add 1 additional full time staff member, onboard 5 contractors, create 15 new events, and reach a total 1 ,900 new members in recovery this year. With continued contributions, we anticipate impacting over 300 folks at treatment centers with an opportunity to join free events in Tampa in support of their early recovery, onboard 10 more contractors to continue to diversify programs in Tampa and St. Pete, while continuing to build brand awareness. This year our honoree for our 2nd FTBK Event is Bob Clark.
