WOODBURY – As part of National Recovery Month, The Woodbury-Bethlehem Parent Connection held its 11th Annual Walk Supporting Addiction Recovery and candlelight vigil at Hollow Park on Friday night.
About 200 walkers participated in the stroll through town included stops at Mitchell Elementary School and a memorial display of 32 crosses at Munson-Lovetere Funeral Home, the halfway point. Groups of walkers representing organizations including Advocates for Substance Abuse Prevention of Woodbury-Bethlehem, Calvary Chapel of Southbury, and Lending Hands Discipleship Center of Waterbury participated in the event.
Upon returning to the Hollow, a moving candle light vigil was held for those struggling to get into recovery, those in recovery, and for those we have lost to the disease of addiction.
