Description

We welcome you to the inaugural Overdose Awareness Memorial Walk Fundraiser event benefiting The Phoenix Wichita! The Phoenix is helping individuals transform their lives from substance use disorder with free recovery resources so that that together we rise, recover and live.  Together we walk to remember those who have lost their lives to overdose and support those lives affected by substance use. Come spend the day with us as we remember, feel connected to others and fight to end the stigma in hopes of ending the losses.

This special event includes a 1-mile walk, speakers, community resources, grief support,  interactive memorial space, lunch, and activities for the whole family.

About The Phoenix Wichita.

The Phoenix is an innovative nonprofit organization that helps people recover from substance use disorder and heal by leveraging the intrinsic transformative power of social connection and activity. Through group fitness, meditation, running, climbing, hiking, dance, and other meaningful activities, The Phoenix combats the isolation, shame, and hopelessness that often surrounds substance use and perpetuates relapse. Events at The Phoenix are FREE to anyone with at least 48 hours of continuous sobriety. By meeting each person where they are and believing in them until they can believe in themselves, we create an environment where healing happens and recovery flourishes. We help thousands of individuals rise every day from the ashes of addiction and find the hope and support they need to thrive in recovery.

All sales are final. No refunds.

PATHWAY SIGN SUBMISSION

 We would like to remember your loved one with an individualized pathway sign as we take the 1-mile walk and for the interactive memorial space. Submit your loved ones photo to bschrader@thephoenix.org (Subject: Photo for Overdose Awareness Walk).
