Come out and enjoy Labor Day with Headrest. Walk, run, bike or stroll…heck, you can even ramble! Bring the kids. Go a little way. Go a long way. Enjoy some delicious pie at our final rest stop in Enfield. And, when you have had your fill of exercise, we will have games, a raffle, a BBQ and live music by Ted Mortimer and the Repeat Offenders, waiting for you on the Lebanon Green/Colburn Park. We will be there to add entertainment to your day and Headrest staff and volunteers will provide encouragement along the way.
Proceeds benefit HEADREST –a nonprofit organization that began at Dartmouth College in 1971 and is now located in Lebanon, NH. Headrest provides the only 24-hour crisis hotline for New Hampshire, Vermont, and parts of Maine, and it has logged over 417,000 hours of continuous service to the Upper Valley and beyond. In 2017, this meant answering 8,200 phone calls, half of which were considered crisis calls, including over 1300 suicide-related calls. Headrest also provides low intensity residential services as well as outpatient services to those recovering from and affected by substance use disorder. Your participation in our largest fundraising event, Rail Trail Ramble, helps us meet our goal of providing both excellent crisis and substance abuse recovery support.
