Be a Part of the Honor Guard and Lead the 2017 Recovery Walks!
The Honor Guard, those with 10+ years of recovery, has led the Recovery Walks! since its inception. Ten years in recovery is an important milestone and an enduring symbol. It is the symbol of hope and proof that recovery is possible and it is happening now.
Sign up for the Honor Guard at www.recoverywalks.org and click on the Honor Guard button. As a member of the Honor Guard, you will be given a purple sash to wear and you will be part of this important group that shows what is possible with recovery. Pick up your sash at the Honor Guard Booth in the Great Plaza before the start of the Walk. The Honor Guard will assemble in the Plaza prior to 9 a.m. for the annual group photo. The Honor Guard leads the start of the walk and then steps aside to cheer the walkers on. As the walkers return to Penn's Landing the Honor Guard is there to welcome them back.
We are looking for Honor Guard members who could be available to have their story videotaped before or during the walk. We would like you to discuss how long you have been in recovery, your drug of choice and what recovery means to you. This is a wonderful way to give hope to those struggling with addiction that they too can thrive in recovery. It is important to give a face to recovery and demonstrate to our legislatures and recovery program funders that recovery works!
or 215-345-6644 if you would like to part of this important aspect of the 2017 Recovery Walks!

Quitting tobacco in recovery can increase your chances of staying clean and sober by 25%. Chat with our volunteers who will have valuable information and promotional aids to help you stop smoking.
