Are you ready to CRUSH it!! CRUSH: A Substance Use Coalition United Through Community Strong is hosting a virtual walk anytime, anywhere from October 12-31 to raise awareness about the stigmas that surround our friends and family that suffer from Substance Use Disorder.  Form a fundraising team and walk in memory or in honor of someone who has struggles with Substance Use Disorder. Share your experiences and post selfies and scenes from your walks and tag @commstrongscc while using the hashtag #stompoutstigma. A portion of the  funds raised at this event will used to host the Teen Drug Summit as well as the Parent Drug Summit in April 2021. 
Hope must be a possibility for people with substance use/misuse disorders and our whole community benefits when we work to remove stigmas around treatment and recovery. Donate Today! Form your team today to Leave An Imprint! www.communitystrongscc.org/stomp-out-stigma



Between October 12 & 31 treat yourself to a walk anywhere at anytime.

Our original plans to have an in person walk this year have changed... so we'd like you to be a part our 1st Annual Stomp Out Stigma Virtual Walk.

What Should You Do?

Walk in your own neighborhood, local park or anywhere as an individual or with your own team of friends and family.  Share your experience and post selfies, scenes from your walks and tag us on Facebook and Instagram @commstrongscc and use the hashtag #stompoutstigma.

How Can You Help?

1. Donate

2. Be a Fundraiser

Click the "Join a Team" button and either join a team that you can share with your network of family and friends.  Or even create a team for your family and friends.  It only takes a couple minutes to create and it's simple to then share with all your family and friends.  Use your Team Name to also honor or share a memory of someone dear to you.  See your team's progress on the leaderboard!
