Freedom Walk/Run
July 20-26, 2020

Extraordinary hardship requires extraordinary action.  The need for Gosnold’s services is greater than ever before.  We continue to be here for those who seek good health and lasting recovery.

The Coronavirus Pandemic reminds us to appreciate optimal health and human connection.  The safety measures practiced during the pandemic created extraordinary hardship for individuals affected with substance use and mental health challenges.

It’s time to join together and walk to support lasting recovery.

Please consider supporting our important mission to further addiction treatment as we embark on Gosnold’s Freedom Walk/Run scheduled for July 20 – 26, 2020.

1. Donate to any of the three Freedom Walk/Run Teams to help the team raise resources and awareness for Gosnold, Inc.
