The fifth annual “Changing the Face of Addiction” walk will be held on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019, at the Franklin Fireman’s Pavilion on Buckwheat Road in Franklin.

This one and a half mile walk is being held in memory of two young men from Sussex County who lost their lives to addiction. The event begins at 10 a.m. with registration at 9 a.m. Bagels, hamburgers, hot dogs and refreshments will be available at no extra charge, thanks to the generous donations from local families and businesses.

Two mothers, joined by pain and heartache over their loss, came to The Center for Prevention and Counseling where, together, the planning of this healing community event has provided hope for them and others for the past five years.

This family friendly event will have local and national prevention, treatment and recovery resources available, fun games for children, and an opportunity to hear personal stories about recovery. Last year, over 500 people participated and organizers are hoping to surpass that number this year.

To register for the “Changing the Face of Addiction,” walk, find out more information, become a sponsor, register a team of walkers or, to become involved in any way, call Laura at The Center at (973) 383-4787, email laura@centerforprevention.org or go to www.centerforprevention.org/walk.
