Walk for Recovery

Fellowship Hall, Inc., will host the second annual WALK for RECOVERY, a FREE community event where individuals leading lives in recovery can come together with their family, counselors, and friends to be a beacon of hope to others struggling with addiction to alcohol and drugs. The WALK hopes to dispel the stigma associated with Substance Use Disorder, helping the public understand that addiction is a treatable disease, not the result of bad behavior.

“Many people do not know what successful recovery looks like. The WALK FOR RECOVERY is about coming out in the open as living examples that recovery is real and obtainable, a live demonstration that recovered people can live happy and healthy lives. We are in an epidemic situation with opiate use. We must show people that recovery is possible. Alcoholics and addicts are worth helping; they can get their lives back and become engaged and productive members of our communities,” said Mike Yow, a licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist with over 30 years of experience in the Substance abuse field, who currently serves as President and CEO of Fellowship Hall.

The WALK kicks off on Sunday, April 29th at 2:00 pm in Center City Park, Downtown Greensboro. Walkers will depart from the park for a 1-mile trek then return to the Park where individuals in recovery will share their personal success stories to encourage and motivate attendees. Freedom House and Wilmington Treatment Center will have information on available community resources for those interested in learning more about treatment and recovery. The event will close with the sounds of Lyn Koonce, one of Greensboro’s up and coming local musicians. Sponsors for this year’s event include the Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation and Holly Hill Hospital in Raleigh, NC. Organizations interested in hosting an information table should contact our event organizer, Altina Layman, at 336-621-3381.

About Fellowship Hall: Fellowship Hall is a 99-bed, private, 501(c)(3) non-profit alcohol and drug treatment center located in Greensboro, N.C. We provide treatment and evidence-based programs built upon total abstinence and the Twelve-Step model of recovery. We have been accredited by The Joint Commission since 1974 as a specialty hospital and are a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers.

Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge

Savanna Williams is a Wish Recipient through Make-A-Wish. Less than 3 years ago, she needed a walker to get down the hallway. Now, she's giving back by participating in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge! The Trailblaze Challenge is a 28.3 mile hike all in one day to raise funds to grant wishes for children suffering life-threatening illnesses. Just like with Savanna, these wishes go a long well not only for the mental and emotional well-being for the child AND family, but for the physical as well. Savanna's goal is to raise $5,000 for the Challenge so that she can grant the wish of another child and pay it forward. her donation page and story can be found at

Thank you!!!

Battle of the Past "Elements of Fashion and Beauty" NP

This year we aspire to use our fashion show, "Fashion and Elements of Beauty", as a vehicle to challenge traditional stereotypes about what defines beautiful. We are working to raise funds to expand our outreach by purchasing and transforming a Ford E450 22 passenger van, or similar vehicle, into a Fashion Mobile. We desire to install a resource wall containing national and local domestic violence literature. It would enable us to further our core goal of raising awareness regarding topics pertaining to healthy families and relationships. We want to expand the conversation and hopefully transform America's love language in this regard.

Showtimes 2:30 pm, 4:30 pm, and 6:30 pm
