Everyone should register before the walk; however, you can register at the Stop the Heroin table at the walk. This helps us know how many people attended, which enables us to let the media & legislatures know so they know that sober living and recovery is a very important issue to our communities.
There is no registration fee or donation required to participate in the Recovery Celebration. Walkers may choose to walk without raising funds. However, all donations are appreciated, no matter how large or how small.
The walk route is 1.4 miles (.7 mi each way), starting at Kennedy Plaza to the Central Pier and back to Kennedy Plaza.
Kennedy Plaza is located on the Atlantic City Boardwalk, in front of Boardwalk Hall, next to the empty Trump Plaza. This is where the Miss America statue is located, and it is next door to Atlantic City Mini Golf. Kennedy Plaza is between S Florida and S Mississippi. map
Walkers who have donated or raised $50 or more will receive an event t-shirt. Please give your name at the registration table at the walk to receive your shirt. One tshirt per person.
If you are an individual member of a team and donated $50 or more you will receive an event t-shirt.
Bottled water and a light lunch will be provided. Soda and snacks will be available for purchase.
We encourage you to create signs that highlight your recovery. This can include date of sobriety, amount of time you've been clean/sober, before/after pics, or any other information you feel is appropriate.
If you would like to create a sign in memory of a loved one who was lost to addiction, we will remember them with you.
Signs promoting a business are not permitted.
