Celebrate Addiction Recovery at Recovery Day on Sun. Aug. 28th

The Lancaster County Recovery Alliance (LCRA) Annual Recovery Walk and Rally will be held Sunday, August 28th at Clipper Magazine Stadium. The event has been coined as a celebration of people in recovery. Hear inspirational stories from people in addiction recovery, do yoga, create something at our sign-making station, listen to music, and more! The rally starts at 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the front parking lot of the stadium, with Tim Stoddart, founder of Sober Nation, as featured speaker. Sober Nation is a national resource center and online community for people in recovery. The Walk for Recovery, which starts and finishes at Clipper Magazine Stadium, is 1.8 miles long. It begins about noon, and the path winds around the Franklin & Marshall College area. If you’d like to stay for the Lancaster Barnstormers game, special Recovery Day tickets with all-you-can-eat Hess’s BBQ are ON SALE NOW! Contact Amy Sechrist at asechrist@compassmark.org.Tickets must be purchased in advance–Recovery Day tickets will not be available the day of the event. Last year’s event, which featured baseball superstar Dwight “Doc” Gooden (pictured above with Cylo from the Lancaster Barnstormers), was a day marked by community, empowerment, and pride. Read highlights of Recovery Day 2015. The LCRA’s mission is to promote addiction recovery, awareness, and community outreach in Lancaster County. The group is also dedicated to eliminating the stigma of addiction–a stigma that makes it harder for recovering people to become engaged community members. The LCRA is powered by community members, including people in recovery from addiction, friends and family members, service providers, legal/law enforcement, church/faith-based groups, corrections professionals, the business community, and other allies.
