Get involved by participating in one of our events, or hosting your own!



While many of us are not addicted to alcohol or drugs, we all have our vices. Whether it’s coffee, online shopping, fast food, binge watching Netflix, or eating too much sugar- we imagine there’s something we could all give up in our lives that would make us a bit healthier. We’re inviting you to do just that: give it up (at least for the month of September), and become a SoberHero*.

*Cape and “whooshing” sound effects optional (but highly encouraged).

You are cordially invited to stay home!

Skip the dress, the cab, the babysitter, auction bidding war and the headache…this is your Night Off! Instead of going out, spend a night in with your family, friends or on your own. No matter what you do, know you are helping individuals access the life-saving programs at the Thorpe Recovery Centre.

All proceeds from this non-event will benefit the Walter A. “Slim” Thorpe Recovery Centre Treatment Fun.

Something New – Third Party Fundraisers

Third Party Fundraisers are a fantastic way to give back to your community and support a local charity and social services like the Thorpe Recovery Centre.

What is a Third Party Fundraiser?

An event or initiative organized by an individual, community group, or company that is not an official event or campaign coordinated by the Thorpe Recovery Centre. Third Party Fundraisers are an important resource to help us be a leading, community-based organization that provides strength, hope, and healing through programming and supports to those affected by addiction and mental health needs.

When you organize a Third Party Fundraiser, you are not only raising money to support Thorpe Recovery Centre; you are also raising awareness about addiction and the important work we do. This increase in awareness is an invaluable component to our prosperity in the community.

We ask that all fundraisers being held to support Thorpe Recovery Centre are presented to Thorpe Recovery Centre for approval and indicate how they will be compatible with our mission, vision, values and Third Party Fundraising policies.

What Will Your Fundraiser Benefit?

There are several options and areas of our service you can support with your fundraiser including:

– 12 Step Garden
– Area of Greatest Need
– Capital Debt Reduction
– Treatment Fund (via LRHF)

You can pick something close to your heart; no matter what you will be a friend of recovery!

This will help you understand who we are, what support we can provide to you and what we require from you for your fundraiser. It reviews the approval process, logo usage, promotions, insurance and liability, sponsorship, volunteers, Thorpe Recovery Centre representative request and tax receipt processes. It will also review what support we give to you, the hosting of the third part fundraiser, such as providing logos, messages, speaking notes, on-line fundraising platforms, social media and website promotion etc.
