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.
