About This Activity

Come out and enjoy a day of food, fun, and fundraising. Local chefs and food vendors will be on-site providing healthy food samples for participants.  This year’s event will begin with a morning warm up & stretch session provided by Go! Smoothie’s owner and holistic health coach Callie Bradford.  Proceeds from the walk will support NCCS’s goal of breaking the “cycle of trauma” being witnessed in our community’s schools. Funds will support deploying mental health staff in classrooms and school buildings to train and support educators and administrators in recognizing and dealing with trauma, experienced, unfortunately, by many of our community’s school children.

“With all the tumult in our various school systems, having to engage children and families that are dealing with traumatic situations makes educators’ job even more challenging. New Center wants to be the expert support and service provider to these school systems children and families” said New Center Community Services, CEO Joy D. Calloway.
