THIS IS A MIAMI VALLEY EVENT for anyone touched by addiction.
The FOA Rally goal is to unite the people and resources of the Miami Valley together to raise awareness about substance use disorders, eliminate the stigma associated with addiction and show that recovery works.
FAMILIES, FRIENDS, INDIVIDUALS SEEKING AND THOSE IN LONG-TERM RECOVERY.. We need your face & voice to be heard and seen to eliminate the stigma of addiction and show that there is strength in numbers. We cannot solve a problem no one will talk about.
• Music - Street Corner Symphony
• Resource Tables
• Guest Speakers
• Balloon Launch
• BIG PICTURE of Recovery
• Canvas of hope/memories to sign
• TapSnap Digital Photo Booth
• Face Painting
Be a part of HISTORY by stepping forward to be a FACE & VOICE of recovery. All persons in any length of long-term recovery, friends and family are asked to step out of the shadows and into the light to participate in the history-making BIG PICTURE photo showing that RECOVERY WORKS for indIviduals and families in the Miami Valley.
The Balloon Launch is our most moving part of the day. Everyone is encouraged to purchase their "Bands for Balloons" (bracelets) beforehand which correspond with each of the 3 balloon colors/meanings. These bands/balloons signify each person's personal place, or families' place, in this journey.
White: those who are now with the angels
Red: those still seeking long-term recovery
Yellow: those in long-term recovery
Raise your bands high as hundreds of balloons are let go into the sky. Street Corner Symphony and two local high school acapella groups will sing Coldplay's "Fix You" as we stand together, united as a community who refuses to stop fighting. Don't miss one of the best parts of the 2016 Rally!
