Slideshow of Photos from the Chris Atwood Foundation Tenth Anniversary Bash


Slideshow of photos from The Chris Atwood Foundation 10th Anniversary Bash on May 6, 2023.

This was a riff on our usual “Hope in Motion” spring FUNdraising event, but this year was our 10th anniversary so we highlighted that.

We had activities for all ages including:

  • Smokin’ Willy’s on-site grilling
  • Kids games
  • Music
  • Petting zoo
  • Lawn games
  • Wellness activities
  • Raffle prizes
  • Birthday cake

The CAF supports all paths to recovery from substance use disorder, and one of the foundational philosophies of harm reduction is to celebrate “any positive change” that improves health and wellbeing.

In that spirit, we’re inviting you to join us in supporting The CAF’s mission through any movement you choose! Walk, run, hike, bike, swim, practice yoga, dance, jump rope – however you choose to move your body to support recovery and honor our loved ones we have lost to substance use disorder.

We encourage you to create fundraising teams, post pictures, and get the kids, your friends, and neighbors involved to help us raise much needed funds that will allow The CAF to continue its critical mission of saving lives and supporting recovery.

Our topic will be addiction, recovery, and ending the stigma surrounding addiction.
