Group Balloon Release


In an effort to destigmatize the struggles we all experience in life, Recognize & Rise has adopted the theme “It Happens. But it doesn’t have to define us.”

To bring that to life, we are staging group balloon releases, signifying participants’ “letting go” of something they have been struggling with. By doing this in a group, we recognize we are not alone in dealing with chronic stress, adversity and emotional trauma. We build a sense of commonality and community.

Schedule a group balloon release today!

What we Provide

Helium-filled biodegradable balloons printed with the campaign theme “It Happens. But it doesn’t have to define us” will be provided to each group participant at no expense to the collaborating group.

FREE delivery will be provided to those groups/agencies in Tarrant County within 30 miles of downtown Fort Worth. For Tarrant County groups outside that perimeter, other arrangements must be made for pick up or delivery.
