Shatterproof Rise Up Against Addiction Walk
November 12, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Shatterproof, a national nonprofit focused on reversing the course of the addiction crisis in America, will host an event on Saturday, November 12 for the Dallas community to Rise Up Against Addiction and support family, friends, neighbors and colleagues impacted by the disease.
The second Rise Up Against Addiction Walk will give the community the opportunity to bring the disease of addiction into the light and share inspiring stories of hope and recovery. Participants will unite to engage in several activities geared toward ending the stigma associated with substance use disorder, including a walk.
Other highlights include:
• The Shatterproof Community Resource Village, showcasing substance use disorder resources from local organizations
• The Memorial Gallery, featuring an area dedicated to photos and stories of lost loved ones
• Celebrate Recovery Wall, an interactive space to unite and celebrate with hundreds of others in recovery
• An opening ceremony profiling local walkers touched by addiction and recognition of top teams, fundraisers and leading event sponsors
Revenues raised from the Rise Up Against Addiction event supports Shatterproof’s work in advocating for changes in federal and state policy as well as programming focused on saving lives and changing the conversation about addiction.
