On December 18, 2021, you braved the rain to support Hope Coalition and we are so grateful to all of you for that. Holiday spirits were high, your costumes were amazing, and the hot chocolate flowed to greet finishers! Between the goody bags, ornaments, treats, and prizes for top finishers, this was one for the books, and we had a blast with you on the course! We couldn't have done it without the support of our sponsors, volunteers, law enforcement, and of course, our amazing participants. Here's how it all shook up:

We believe that long-term recovery from substance misuse is possible for anyone and want to keep guiding others in that journey. We're also incredibly passionate about our most important and often overlooked population: our kiddos! Providing substance misuse education and prevention efforts has helped us reach thousands of students in Henderson County. This is what gets us out of bed every morning.
