12:00 PM – 6:00 PM

CCAR began hosting the annual “Recovery Walks!” celebration in 2000. We are proud to say “Recovery Walks!”

just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

On Saturday, September 21st 2019 we will be celebrating our 20th annual walk!!! We were also chosen by Faces and Voices of Recovery to be the National Hub event for the 2019 Rally for Recovery. We’ve extended our hours this year to give the Recovery community in our neighboring states the opportunity to come join us and make this the LARGEST celebration ever!

We are delighted to have Shaded Soul performing again this year along with stories of recovery, advocates, exhibitors, and plenty of fun activities (face painting, caricatures, food trucks, etc.) We are also offering free round-trip bus transport to the event. See schedule below for details.
