Plans for a great morning in Franklin are under way! All are welcome to attend the 3rd Annual LRGHealthcare Bridge to Recovery Walk on Sunday, June 2nd at Franklin Regional Hospital.

This family-friendly event will bring together community friends and neighbors, local businesses, and patients, providers & staff from LRGHealthcare and our community partners Lakes Region Mental Health Center and Navigating Recovery, to raise awareness and funds and to show our support for those in our community who are struggling with, or recovering from, substance use or mental illness.

LRGHealthcare representatives are grateful and proud to announce that ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care has stepped-up once again as our Water Sponsor – the highest level sponsor of the Bridge to Recovery Walk to-date! Sponsorship opportunities with great recognition benefits are still available, and many in our community have already registered to walk (teams in honor of a loved one are encouraged!).

The 2-mile walk will begin and end at Franklin Regional Hospital (10:00 a.m. Registration; 10:30 program; 11:00 Walk), followed by a springtime lunch celebration on the FRH lawn courtesy of Boomer’s Barbecue. The morning’s festivities will include music, face painting and other fun activities, and an opportunity to write messages in honor or memory of a loved one. “LRGHealthcare is committed to working with our community partners to help those who are struggling with mental illness, substance use, or both,” states LRGHealthcare President & CEO Kevin W. Donovan. “In partnership with the Lakes Region Mental Health Center and Navigating Recovery, we look forward to hosting the third annual Bridge to Recovery Walk at FRH on June 2. We encourage everyone in the community to join us for a nice walk, a delicious lunch, music & celebration — all while raising funds for a very important cause” adds Donovan.

A $20 donation covers the Walk and includes lunch; Walk Superstars who raise at least $100 will receive an event sport pack. Children 10 and under are free. There will be contests for largest team, most spirited team, and most money raised by a team. Winners in each category will receive a special gift.

Joining Water Sponsor ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care is Stroll Sponsor Franklin Regional Hospital Auxiliary; Shuffle Sponsor Franklin Savings Bank; Balloon Sponsor Dr. Friend & Dr. Suarez and their families; and Community Partners Granite State Glass and Patrick’s Pub & Eatery.
