Why Do We Walk?
Every meeting of our Recovery Walk Planning Committee begins with the question, "Why Do We Walk?" Here's a sampling of the answers, in no particular order:
  • To provide hope to those who have lost hope
  • To show that recovery is real and is happening now
  • Because life in recovery is fun
  • For loved ones, family and friends still suffering
  • To break the stereotype and end discrimination
  • To enjoy the spirit of community and unity
  • To instigate acceptance, advocacy, awareness, unity
  • To be the new face and voice of recovery
  • To end the stigma associated with our community
  • To give voice to those who have lost their battle

Walk in the Honor Guard 
RibbonsWill you have 10 or more years of Recovery by September 20? You are among a very special group of people who make up the Honor Guard.

When you register, please go to the question, "Will you walk with the Honor Guard?" Select "Yes" in the box and then give your number of years in recovery. Help us raise the years represented into the thousands. Honor Guard members are honored with a purple sash and a button on which they write their number of consecutive years in recovery. It is a symbol of hope and proof that recovery is possible and it's happening NOW. The growing Honor Guard leads the walk and then separates to cheer the rest of the walkers on their way. It serves as the embodiment of the message we send---long-term recovery is real!
