Team Captains Kickoff Meetings in June
Learn how to organize and INSPIRE a Team
Come join old friends, and make some new ones, at any one of our Team Captains meetings scheduled in June at our Recovery Community Centers. A Team Captain is a leader living in recovery, family or friend of someone in recovery, or anyone supporting the recovery movement. 

In addition to the camaraderie, you'll learn how to organize a team, sign your team up online, instill a sense of fun into the process, and raise more money effectively. You may even want to design and order special t-shirts for your team (we have a contact for that). We will have plenty of tips, handouts and answers to your questions. You can also visit us at

If you have already started your team, come share your tips with newcomers. And please continue inviting your friends, family and associates to join your team and learn more about why we walk.

We appreciate all of your support as we continue to break down the stigma and 
share the joys of living in recovery.

A Note About Sponsorship

As you can imagine, hosting an event that attracts 23,000 people annually is an enormous undertaking that involves major overhead expenses and a large, dedicated pool of volunteers. 

Building our sponsorship support is an important part of the planning. We would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions you can offer as we build our sponsorship support over the coming weeks. There are many levels of sponsorship and promotional opportunities that could benefit your company or organization, while helping to reduce the stigma and grow our recovery communities.

Additionally, please consider asking your employer about the possibility of
matching your charitable contributions for this event,
and/or building a work team to participate in the 1.5 mile walk.

For more information about sponsorship, or to receive an informational packet, please contact Linda Brooke here, or call 215-345-6644, ext. 3115.
