CCD's Holiday Hoopla 5K Walk/Run is a family-friendly event that will be held on Saturday, December 3rd (10am start time), at St. Peter the Apostle School in New Castle, DE. This year's event will feature cookies, hot cocoa, ugly sweaters, holiday music, prize giveaways, and even a hula hoop contest!
Holiday attire is not required but is highly encouraged, so put on your favorite sparkly and jingly attire - ugly Christmas sweater, Santa hat, elf ears, and jingle bells! 'Tis the season to spread good cheer and be jolly for a reason! Bring a team of friends, family, and coworkers to run, walk, or volunteer...and be an ambassador of hope! 100% of the proceeds from this event will support CCD’s youth prevention programming and CCD’s adult recovery housing.
The proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards supporting our C.A.R.E. (Community Advocacy, Recovery Empowerment) Program. This program provides comprehensive case management services in a supportive, structured, monitored, and accountable recovery home environment. The CARE Program staff delivers service coordination, house management, transportation, and guidance that help individuals with a substance use disorder access social services benefits, health insurance, and various other local resources. While in the program, CARE participants learn the necessary skills to maintain their recovery as they become self-supporting, thriving members of our community. This program supports both men and women living in six different recovery homes located in New Castle, Delaware.
This fundraiser will also support our youth prevention program, HOPE (Healthy Options for Prevention Education). CCD leadership believes this program will help us plant the seeds of prevention for the next generation of Delaware's youth. The pilot for this free, holistic after-school program, launched in the Spring of 2022 at the Knollwood Community Center in Claymont, DE, provided 20+ local youths with educational, nutritional, recreational, and social development activities three days a week for seven weeks. With your support, we plan to run this program for FREE for even more Delaware youth during the 2022-2023 school year!
