Recovery Walk Pittsburgh 2020

Published on September 12, 2020 by

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!
