1st Annual

Jericho Walk for Hope and Healing

JOIN US on May 20, 2017 to walk for Hope and Healing!

Our community is joining together to pray for the destruction of the stronghold of drugs, addiction and to Celebrate Recovery! Jericho Walk is a time for us to make a difference, to take back our loved ones and to remember those that have been lost. Help us to help others take back our community.

The goal of Jericho Walk is to:

  • Support and give HOPE those who are currently struggling in their addiction

  • Support the family and friends of those affected

  • CELEBRATE the people in our community who have FOUGHT for their RECOVERY and are living out a life now that can give HOPE and encouragement to those who need it!

  • Help remove the STIGMA of addiction and let the community SEE that RECOVERY HAPPENS!!

Recognize YOUR Loved Ones lost to addiction!

Let's CELEBRATE their lives, remember that they were so much more than their STRONGHOLD! They were Loved PEOPLE with lives outside of addiction!!

Honor your Loved one by walking in their memory, when you register, select the ‘I’m Walking in Memory of Someone I Love’ Ticket. A station will be provided between 10 and 10:30 at GAR Park where you can make a sign to carry – so bring photos, memories, and special items about your loved one and celebrate their life.
