Community Walk for Recovery and Revere Beach Memorial

The Community Walk for Recovery is an event led by Revere High School students and teachers, and the Revere CARES Coalition. The walk connects prevention efforts among youth and shows support for community members who are on a journey to recover from substance abuse.  Everyone is invited.
The Revere Beach Memorial serves as a way to remember those who lost their lives to substance abuse. It is an opportunity for family members and friends to gain strength and support from others who have experienced a similar loss, and it is a reminder to those struggling with addiction that treatment can save lives. The planning committee for the Revere Beach Memorial is a group of dedicated individuals who are committed to helping Revere prevent and address substance abuse.

This important annual event is made possible through the support of local residents and business owners. If you are interested in making a donation to the Revere Beach Memorial fund, please send checks (made payable to the ‘Revere Beach Memorial Fund’) to the Revere Beach Memorial, c/o Revere CARES Coalition, 300 Ocean Avenue, Revere, MA 02151. Money raised will not only go towards continuing the memorial, it will also be used to support local addiction treatment programs and youth education. Funds raised in the past have been donated to the North Suffolk Mental Health Meridian House, East Boston Rehab and a Revere High School scholarship fund for youth impacted by addiction.Individuals who would like to remember a loved one at the Memorial are invited to call (781) 485-6404 to register their loved ones’ names. Registration will also be open between 6:00-7:00 p.m. on the night of the event. Family members and friends are also invited to bring photographs of the loved ones they have lost to add to a ‘memorial wall’ that will be up during the event.
