PRO-ACT RECOVERY WALKS 2015
25,000 RECOVERY SUPPORTERS
WALKED ON SEPTEMBER 19
to our Supporters and Sponsors!
Thanks for helping us to celebrate recovery and working to end the stigma surrounding drug and alcohol addiction. People have been walking in Recovery Walks! to support recovery from drug and alcohol addiction disorders during September’s National Recovery Month for 14 years. On September 19, 2015, 25,000 people represented the faces and voices of recovery in Philadelphia and saw PRO-ACT receive the Philadelphia Transformation Award for its work in helping individuals and families achieve long-term recovery.
We pay taxes, we vote, and we each contribute to our community's well-being. Together we can eliminate the shame and embarrassment associated with this disease and save lives! Together we can show decision makers that the individuals, families and communities want to end stigma! We can't afford to be silent anymore.
Everyone knows someone in recovery. You can support PRO-ACT and help them.
