Fundraising Talking Points
Asking people to support you or join your team is easier if people understand why you’re involved. Discuss why you support the Walk for Recovery and why you’re participating in this event. Share your personal experiences and let them know why this cause is important to you. Here are some facts to help you out:
*The Walk for Recovery helps Minnesota Recovery Connection support addiction recovery and create awareness of recovery and recovery-related services in Minnesota.
*Since 2010, Minnesota Recovery Connection has received over 30,500 volunteer hours from over 1,000 volunteers that provide peer recovery support, outreach, administrative and special event volunteering.
*The funds you raise for the Walk for Recovery stay in Minnesota, going directly to recovery-related efforts and to service Minnesotans affected by addiction.
*We need to fight the stigma and misinformation associated
with recovery. Recovery is a life-long process with a definition that continues
to evolve. It affects people from every age and every community and people need
to understand the positive impact that people in recovery can make.
