We have exciting news! Many people have hoped and prayed for a residential addiction recovery program for the women of Alaska and it is now coming to pass. Currently the AKDC is a men’s center. We have received hundreds of calls from women in desperation and it breaks our hearts to say, “I’m sorry, we do not have a women’s home at this time.” However, we are excited to announce this is about to change. The Alaska Dream Center has acquired a beautiful 38 acre property in Willow, Alaska on Willow Fishhook Road near Hatcher’s Pass. Once known as Black Mountain Inn and Last Chance Coffee House. We have spent the last year renovating the property along with the generous help and donations of missions teams and our local community. The funds from the Walk of Hope will go 100% toward getting the center up and running!
Along with the walk, we are excited to announce our first ever Rubber Ducky Race!
The Willow Creek Rubber Ducky Race will take place directly after the Walk of Hope. Rubber duckies can be purchased for $10 each or 3 for $20. The duckies will then be released into Willow Creek where our team will be standing by to make sure any stuck ducks continue down the creek until they reach the netted finish line. The first ducky to the finish line wins half the prize money up to $500! Afterward the ducks will be collected and counted to make sure none are still lingering behind.
The purpose of the Walk of Hope is to have a lot of fun while raising funds for the AKDC’s women’s home. There will be refreshment stations along the route. The men of the AKDC will be walking, along with others like you from our community who will join us, to see the dream of the women’s center become a reality. We will be walking 5 kilometers(3.1) miles to the new Alaska Dream Centers Women’s Campus where a celebration will take place with a bonfire, barbecue, prizes, and live music.
How you can be involved:
You can begin to help right away by telling a friend and asking them to tell a friend.
