PRO-ACT Recovery Walks! 2015
Celebrating SAMHSA's National Recovery Month

Last year 23,000 of you celebrated RECOVERY at Penn's Landing 
Let's top that this year! 
We know we can do it with your help! 
YOU Can Make a Difference!

400 volunteers each year feel the pride of having helped the recovery community and contributed to the success of PRO-ACT Recovery Walks! 

One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. It allows you to connect to yours and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people and organizations in need. And volunteering is a two-way street: It can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.You have your choice NOW of a wide selection of volunteer opportunities!

If you can spare a few hours for one of the
