Hope in Motion
Saturday, May 1st
The Chris Atwood Foundation is building on the success of last years virtual Hiking for Hope, by launching our inaugural “any movement” challenge!
The CAF supports all paths to recovery from substance use disorder. One of the foundational philosophies of harm reduction is to celebrate “any positive change” that improves health and wellbeing while reducing harms caused by substance use disorder. In the spirit of positive change, we encourage you to move your body in support of our mission!
