The All Rise America! National Motorcycle Relay for Recovery is a first of its kind cross-country gavel relay celebrating the inspiring stories of transformation brought to bear every day in America’s Drug Courts, DWI Courts and Veterans Treatment Courts.
Drug Courts refer more people to treatment than any other system in America; treating over 120,000 individuals each year and leading the vast majority of them into life-long recovery. Each of them is a reminder that every American deserves a shot at freedom from addiction.
What: All Rise America! will consist of Drug Court graduates, Drug Court professionals, veterans, and other concerned citizens carrying the All Rise Gavel over 3,000 miles in 24 days, stopping at 25 events in 10 states. At each stop, the gavel will be passed to a new group of riders as a symbol of the collective impact of Drug Courts and a reminder that when one person rises out of addiction and finds recovery, we All Rise.
When: The Relay kicks off in Santa Ana, CA on May 1, 2012 and will end in Washington, DC on May 24, 2012.
Get Involved! Registration for All Rise America! National Motorcycle Relay for Recovery is free and all riders receive a commemorative t-shirt and other gear. Next week the All Rise America! blog will become your home for the latest relay news. You can also view daily photos and videos via Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest.
