People with 10+ years of recovery are invited to participate in the Honor Guard by wearing a purple sash and leading the Walk. The purple sash is a powerful symbol of hope and proof that long-term recovery is possible! Purple sashes will be provided at the Registration tents for walkers with 10+ years of recovery.
Honor Guard members should pick up their sashes when they check-in at the Registration tent before the start of the Walk. The Honor Guard will assemble near the balloon arch at 10:00 am for an annual group photo. More details will be provided at the event.
The Honor Guard leads the Walk with teams and others joining in behind them at 10:30 am. Shortly after the start of the Walk, the Honor Guard steps aside along the route to cheer the rest of the walkers on their way. It serves as the embodiment of the message we need to send – Recovery is Possible and Long-Term Recovery Is Real!
