The Honor Guard, those with 10+ years of recovery, has led Recovery Walks! since its inception. Ten years in recovery is an important and enduring symbol. It is a symbol of hope and proof that recovery is possible and it's happening Now. Sign up for the Honor Guard on the Registration page. You will receive your purple sash and button at the Walk, on which you can write your number of years. It is your own badge of pride in recovery.
Honor Guard members should pick up their sashes and buttons at the Honor Guard Booth in the Great Plaza before the start of the Walk. The Honor Guard will assemble in the Plaza prior to 9 am for the annual group photo. Watch this space for exact place and time.
The Honor Guard leads the Walk with teams and others joining in behind them at 9:00 am. Shortly after the start of the Walk, the Honor Guard steps aside along the route to cheer the rest of the walkers on their way. It serves as the embodiment of the message we need to send –
Long-Term Recovery Is Real!
