Recovery Walk on Sunday, September 22 to
Highlight Recovery Awareness Month and Resources

 Annapolis, Maryland (September 17, 2019) – The 8th Annual Recovery Walk is slated to begin at 10 a.m. on Sunday, September 22 at Whitmore Park in Annapolis. The event will feature speakers who will address the nature of substance abuse recovery. Around Whitmore Park, booths and vendors will be set up to offer resources to people seeking recovery services.

September is Recovery Awareness Month. The event will feature a representative from Gov. Larry Hogan’s office and new Annapolis Police Chief Ed Jackson as well as individuals in long-term recovery.

At noon, organizers will lead a walk (1.2 miles) through downtown Annapolis to raise awareness about the importance of partnerships and the recovery process.

The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available (also free) in the Calvert Street Garage.

 “I encourage people to come out to participate in this walk,” said Mayor Gavin Buckley. “Addiction doesn’t care about socio-economic status, race or gender. Recovery is a community endeavor, and events like this are important to raising issues of public health and well-being.”

The event is in partnership with Recovery Anne Arundel and Street Corner Ministries. Sponsors include Serenity Sistas’ Inc, Gaudenzia, Recovery Centers of America, Pathways, Chrysalis House, WRNR 103.1, Anne Arundel County, City of Annapolis, Evolve Life Centers, Arundel Lodge, Project Chesapeake and New Life Addiction Counseling and Mental Health Services.
