A 9-Step Program!

In order to make the 2021 Walk for Recovery a low-risk event, we've created a "9-Step Program" to guide the walk.  Please follow the steps to avoid congregating with other groups during the walk -- you can still wave and encourage other walkers -- just make sure to do it from a distance.  We all need to do our part to keep our community safe!

STEP 1: Register
Click the “Register to Walk / Join the Campaign Button” at the top of the home page of the  

STEP 2: Create a Team Page 
We know it can be a bit confusing, so we’ve created these instructions to help you.

STEP 3: Recruit 2 Team Members
No one should walk alone!  Invite someone who’s helped you with your recovery, a newcomer at your meeting, or a friend or family member to join your team.  (You can even create a page for your favorite furry friend! #woof4recovery)

STEP 4: Fundraise! 
Share your team page on social media and email friends and family to support the cause! The Walk for Recovery helps sustain all aspects of Oregon Recovers, from the to our advocacy in Salem. 

STEP 5: Tune-In
Gather your team and tune-in at 10:00 am on September 25th to a live-stream kick-off ceremony.  

STEP 6: Mask Up & Walk!  
Put on your Walk for Recovery shirt and mask (we’ll mail these out soon!) and head out on the suggested walk route (Bend, Eugene, Klamath Falls, Medford, Portland) anytime between 10:00AM and 2:00 PM to celebrate your recovery.  Wave and holler at other walkers along the route from a COVID-safe distance!

STEP 7: Demand Change  
End your walk at City Hall (Free Speech Plaza in Eugene, and Troy Field in Bend) by posting a sign on “the wall” promoting recovery and demanding an end to Oregon’s addiction crisis.  If you see other teams or walkers remember to stay 6 feet apart while you post your sign on the wall!

STEP 8: Promote Recovery  
Take a picture in front of the Walk for Recovery banner and post it to social media with the hashtag #walk4recovery

STEP: 9: Get Vaccinated! 
If you haven’t already, this is your chance to protect your health and those you sit next to in your recovery meetings.  Vaccinations will be available in front of Portland, Bend, Eugene, and Klamath Falls city halls!
