The purpose of the Pittsburgh Recovery Walk is to celebrate the many roads to recovery from addiction and all those who travel them. Specifically, the walk aims to:
- Celebrate recovery and recovery supports in our region
- Alleviate stigma toward people personally impacted by addiction
- Showcase the many resources for recovery support, health, and harm reduction in our region
The 2020 Pittsburgh Recovery Walk is Semi-Virtual
We are living in very uncertain times right now through the coronavirus pandemic. We are all trying to adjust to a new normal. It is imperative we take care of ourselves and each other, whatever that means to us.
We must also continue to celebrate recovery and spread a message of hope.
To ensure safety, this year’s walk will be semi-virtual. Choose your own adventure with #MyRoadPGH!
