The 5K Bird Walk for Recovery exists to challenge addiction related stigma, encourage, empower and educate people in recovery, their friends and family.


Saturday September 1, 2018 at Gleason Park, Gary Indiana.

Who should walk?

Anyone who wishes to show support for people in recovery.


Because addiction affects everyone - but so does recovery.

The 5K Bird Walk For Recovery Health & Wellness Expo is a tribute to Seneca 'Bird' Gibbs.

It is Seneca's life and his death that inspires this walk.

Advance registration for our September 1 event is not required, but it is encouraged.

Register to receive updates on the day's events, and learn about volunteer opportunities.

Net proceeds are donated to the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center to support their recovery efforts.

Admission to the Wellness Expo is free. Please register here.
