March Into The Light 2013
EVENT DATE: Sep 07, 2013
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Sep 08, 2013
FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Sep 07, 2013
The March Into the Light is an annual community fundraising walk to celebrate recovery from addiction. It is a unique event to inspire those affected by alcohol and drug problems and rally the community in support of solutions to addiction. The March starts in the pre-dawn darkness, with the rising sun as a symbol of our movement to bring the disease of addiction out of darkness and into the light.
This year we are shooting for at least 500 participants while raising $45,000 to stay right here in Sioux Falls. With the help of the community, our Employer Initiative partners and YOU we are confident we can reach our goals. What are you waiting for? Start fundraising :)
The event is planned annually in conjunction with September’s National Recovery Month and other "Recovery Walks" held around the country. While the March is at the beginning of the month, don't be shy - wear your green and support recovery all September long. Why should I participate? This event is very important not only to those directly affected by addiction, but also to the broader community. When people don't get help for addiction, we all pay the costs. The March Into the Light is a powerful way to help shatter the stigma and shame around alcohol and drug problems. Plus, it's fun :)
