Celebration of Hope Walk 2016

The 3rd Annual Celebration of HOPE Walk was held on Saturday, September 10th, 2016 on the Hiering Avenue Beach in Seaside Heights. This annual event is open to everyone affected by addiction to help raise awareness and spread hope toward recovery. The day featured entertainment, vendors and inspirational speakers. Each participant received a yellow T-Shirt in an effort to raise awareness by transforming the Seaside Heights boardwalk into a sea of yellow. All attendees were invited to honor their loved ones by writing an inspirational message on a paper butterfly and attaching it to our commemorrative Tree of HOPE. The event had over 1,200 attendees, media coverage and community support, and we would like to express our gratitude to everyone who participated and helped to spread our message of hope!

Congratulations to Team McCurley-Stokes for raising the most towards our mission of spreading hope for recovery at our 3rd Annual Celebration of HOPE Walk!
