New Jersey Recovery Walk for Wellness and Concert in the Park
September 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
FREE statewide Recovery Walk for Wellness and Concert in the Park being held this Saturday at Liberty State Park (1 Audrey Zapp Drive, Jersey City, NJ 07305). The Walk, largely a ceremonial demonstration of solidarity, showcases banners with this year’s theme: HUMAN CONNECTION HEAL WOUNDS. The concert will feature Ricky Byrd, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts), Spinning Bad (an up and climbing talented group of young musicians) and the 2019 Shout Down Drugs Contest winner, Jermaine Bethea.
Through the generous sponsorship of the County of Bergen, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, BCB and others, all of New Jersey is uniting at this event to raise awareness, create synergies and serve as the “tipping point” for effectively addressing the disease of addiction. We anticipate this event will go far to offer hope to the suffering, demonstrate the reality of recovery from addiction and serve to eliminate the discrimination and stigma attached to this prevalent disease.
