WIRCO’S Virtual 24 Hours of Recovery

WIRCO’S Virtual 24 Hours of Recovery

12 days left until 24 Hours of Recovery! Beginning at 6:00 PM on September 15th. Visit WIRCO Sheboygan at https://www.facebook.com/wircos/

This is WIRCO’s major annual fundraiser featuring a different speaker live, every hour for 24 hours, all virtually via Facebook Live so you can enjoy it from the comforts of home.  We are excited and grateful to have so many great speakers ready to share their experience, strength and hope with everyone.


Montee Ball from Wisconsin Voices for Recovery will begin the event at 6 PM on 09/25.  Montee Ball is a former running back for the Denver Broncos of the NFL. He played college football for the Wisconsin Badgers and was drafted by the Broncos in the 2nd round of the 2013 NFL Draft. His NFL career sputtered out in just three seasons due to issues stemming from his alcoholism and depression.  He is hoping to continue helping others avoid his mistakes by speaking candidly about his struggles with alcoholism and mental illness that contributed to the end of his football career.  We thank Wisconsin Voices for Recovery for their sponsorship of Montee and for all of the work they do for the recovery community.   


Chester Marcol will wrap up the event at 6 PM on 09/26 by sharing his journey and then offering a book signing.  By 1972, Chester Marcol became a household name in Wisconsin after being named National Football League rookie of the year with the Green Bay Packers. He led the league in scoring in two of his first three years and was among the top place-kickers in the game.  In his autobiography Alive and Kicking Marcol talks about the hurdles he overcame as a Polish immigrant to become an NFL star, provides a no-holds-barred look at his alcohol and substance abuse that cost him his football career and family. A member of the Packers Hall of Fame, Marcol lives in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula where he works as a certified alcohol and drug abuse counselor and fights the daily battle to remain clean and sober.
