Recovery in the Park Celebration CANCELLED
The 11th Annual Recovery in the Park Celebration scheduled for September 12, 2020 has been cancelled per Governor Doug Ducey’s proclamation prohibiting large events and gatherings.
“Recovery in the Park is an important event intended to demonstrate that recovery works and to break the stigma surrounding recovery,” said Karole Finkelstein, Mohave Area Partnership Promoting Educated Decisions (MAPPED) Director. “Our commitment to celebrate and advocate for those in recovery is as strong as ever, however self-care is a pillar of recovery and cancelling this year’s event is an act of self-care for the recovery community and beyond.”
Throughout the last 10 years, the annual recovery month celebration hosted by MAPPED has emphasized that recovery is normal, healthy and desirable and should be accessible to everyone. We look forward to next year’s event to continue our tradition of saluting people in recovery from physical, mental health and/or alcohol and drug use disorders and those who have helped them obtain treatment.
Founded March 12, 2010, MAPPED is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that strives to strengthen our community by creating partnerships, providing advocacy, mobilizing resources within and outside of the community, educating, hosting and participating in community events.
