Go Skate for Zane 2019 is setting up to be a huge success. The day will include a 5K Walk/Run,
Kids Fun Run, Skateboard Competition and Community Health Fair. The event will be covered by
local media: news and social. This amazing community collaboration with grass roots Newburgh
groups including We Are Newburgh , Shred Foundation , Blacc Vanilla and local skaters, will not be
possible without your support.
Keep It Moving is bringing together local organizations to help local young people with the
ambitious goal of saving lives by curbing opioid addiction through engagement in sports, nature and
the arts. Keep It Moving also provides Narcan Kits and training to anyone who needs them. In the
past year we have equipped more than 1,000 people in Newburgh and the Greater Orange County
area with this life saving tool. Keep It Moving strives to bring both life changing and life saving
measures to those affected by opioid overdose.
100% of proceeds raised from this event will be used to help young people in the Newburgh area by
subsidizing costs associated with healthful activities. Currently we are trying to raise funds to bring
Wild Earth Programing, an evidence-based, nature-centered program that promotes respect,
responsibility and resourcefulness, to area young people. Our hope is that engaging our young
people in these types of activities will give them focus and direction to lead them toward healthful
and productive futures while preventing them from making dangerous, unhealthy choices.
The CHSCF 5K Walk/Run at Beaver Brook pavilion benefits The Can’t Hurt Steel Community Foundation, which was created in 2016 by JJ Hanson and his wife Kristen, to enhance the quality of life for those living in our community. The foundation offers financial assistance to families experiencing a catastrophic loss or illness, provides health and wellness programming, as well as promotes community development. We hope you can join us! Run, walk, sponsor, buy raffles, enjoy spring activities, music, and eat some food. Don’t miss out on all the fun!
Your participation in this event helps CHS to continue to provide financial assistance to local families in their time of need and to sponsor fundraising events like spaghetti dinners, to help a greater number of families.CHS also uses the proceeds from this event to award scholarships to graduating seniors pursuing careers in health, wellness, and community development. CHS is currently working on creating fitness trails within a local section of state land. Running or walking in this event will help CHS continue on its mission to help others and improve the community in which we live. Thanks you for your support!
