Learn More About the March
What is the March Into the Light?
The March Into the Light is an annual community fundraising walk to celebrate recovery from addiction. It is a unique event to inspire those affected by alcohol and drug problems and rally the community in support of solutions to addiction. The March starts in the pre-dawn darkness, with the rising sun as a symbol of our movement to bring the disease of addiction out of darkness and into the light.
What is the goal of the March?
Last year, with the help of over 25 volunteers, the walk turned out more than 325 participants and raised over $30,000 to enhance recovery support, advocacy, and awareness programs in the Sioux Falls area. With the help of more volunteers and the Sioux Falls community, Face It TOGETHER Sioux Falls is hoping to expand to over 500 participants this year.
Why is the March held in September?
The event is planned annually in conjunction with Septemberís National Recovery Month and other "Recovery Walks" held around the country.
Why should I participate?
This event is very important not only to those directly affected by addiction, but also to the broader community. When people don't get help for addiction, we all pay the costs. The March Into the Light is a powerful way to help shatter the stigma and shame around alcohol and drug problems.
