Recovery Day Winnipeg 2019
Thousands of people come together across Canada for Recovery Day. This year we want Winnipeg to rally along with us on September 14, 2019. Come celebrate sobriety with us at The Forks. It’s time we tackle the stigma surrounding addictions and mental health issues.
Aurora Recovery Centre and St.Rapheal Wellness Centre invite Winnipeg to be part of the National Faces and Voices of Recovery month this September. The event celebrates recovery from substance use and addiction, helps end the societal stigma and offers hope. It also lends an understanding and support for people who are affected by substance use.
Recovery Day Winnipeg is September 14, 2019 at The Forks.
The festival will include a kids zone, all-day entertainment, resource booths, guest speakers, food vendors, and a market.
