CCAR began hosting the Annual Recovery Walks! in 2000. In our 17th year we are proud to say Recovery Walks! just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Save the Date! Saturday, September 24, 2016, Bushnell Park, Hartford, CT
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

W 2016 feet

While we boast numbers of over 1,000 attendees, we are still reaching for even more participants at our next celebration. In 2015, our walk featured honored guests such as DMHAS Commissioner Miriam E. Delphin-Rittmon, SAMHSA’s Tom Coderre and Channel 3’s Mark Zinni as well as live entertainment provided by Shaded Soul. We hope you will join us in 2016 as we descend upon Hartford’s Bushnell park to put a face on recovery in the capitol city.

All questions can be directed to Chiara at CCAR.

We will update this page regularly with more information regarding parking as it is made available.

We couldn’t put on this annual event for Recovery without the help from our sponsors!  If you are interested in sponsoring or exhibiting at this event, please download this form.
