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

First: Walk the Walk

What: Go on your own recovery walk and share photos/videos with us. You can post them on social media (tag @pghrecoverywalk and use #MyRoadPGH) or you can email your photos/videos to info@pghrecoverywalk.org 

Where: Choose a route that is personally significant or use one of our suggested Walking Routes.

When: We encourage you to walk on September 19, but feel free to do it before that, too

Why: To honor your own journey, inspire others, and fight destructive stigma

How: Walk alone or with friends. Wear a recovery walk t-shirt or not. Choose your own adventure. But don’t forget to share your photos/videos with us so we can include them in our livestream event!

Then: Talk the Talk

What: Tune into our livestream Recovery Walk event

Where: It will be streamed to Facebook Live, Instagram Live, Youtube Live, and pghrecoverywalk.org

When: Saturday, September 19, 7pm Eastern

Why: To see stories, photos, music, Recovery Award winners, and more! And because now more than ever, we need to share a message of hope and support.
