Participate in a Wellness Walk and Recovery Fair: As part of this heartfelt initiative, the Town of Huntington is excited to sponsor several events throughout September that are designed to bring the community together and promote the message of hope and healing. A highlight of these events is the Wellness Walk and Recovery Fair, scheduled for Saturday, September 9th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the picturesque Heckscher Park.
This event promises a delightful day of food, live music, and information booths operated by non-profit organizations and addiction treatment centers from across Long Island. It’s a unique opportunity to connect with resources, share stories, and celebrate the strength and resilience of those on the path to recovery.
The success of the National Recovery Awareness initiative is a testament to the unity and dedication of our community. We extend a heartfelt thank you to all who attended and supported this meaningful cause, making it possible for us to stand together in solidarity and compassion.
As we continue to observe National Recovery Month throughout September, let us remember that together, we can break down barriers, erase stigmas, and offer a helping hand to those in need. Recovery is possible, and it starts with understanding, support, and love.
