Recover Day gives Winnipeg a chance to build awareness around addiction and mental health, challenge social stigma, celebrate recovery, and improves life for individuals, families, communities, and businesses.
Recovery Day Winnipeg (RDW) supports those in recovery and their loved ones, aims to end the stigma of addictions and mental health, provides resources for those who might be seeking help, and brings the community together in unity to fight against such a terrible disease.
Recovery Day allows us to engage with our own stories of recovery, have our voice heard, and our passion demonstrated. Addiction impacts everyone. No one is safe from it. It runs rampant through our lives, even though not all of us are ready to acknowledge that it does.
This special day opens the conversation so that individuals and families will not experience shame in seeking help.
With the transition to an online event this year, due to the pandemic and social distancing precautions, getting sponsorship money to put on the event is that much tougher (and through no fault of anyone or business). We're looking to raise enough money to continue Recovery Day Winnipeg and build on the momentum we achieved in 2019.
Monies raised will go towards ensuring we have quality content, such as household-name speakers and entertainers, as well as the technical equipment and staff to make the online event happen.
Whether it's a few dollars or a lot of dollars, every dollar supports this much needed cause (and we need it now more than ever). The sooner we reach our goal, the better we can serve Winnipeg.
So, please spread the word and help us raise the funds we need to bring Winnipeg another successful Recovery Day!
