As always, we appreciate all the support we receive from our Wood County community, and our hope that by hosting this event, we can continue to spread awareness on mental health.

Chili Cook-Off - 5:30-7:30p.m.

Do you have a tasty chili recipe? Enter your delicious dish in our chili cook-off to prove yours is the best.

Fall Family-Friendly Relay - 5:30-7:30p.m.

Register for our fun-packed family relay! In teams of four, groups will compete in fall inspired games including pumpkin bowling, dress like a scarecrow, football toss, and more! And to keep the fun going, stay longer at our Kid's Power Hour.

Recovery Celebration - 7:30-8:00p.m.

We will conclude our evening with a special Recovery Celebration! Throughout the event, we invite anyone to make a pendant or write their loved ones name on a table cloth in order to  remember those we have lost and those struggling with mental health conditions. Lastly, we will have a performance by a local artist who will leave us inspired with a message of hope.

We encourage anyone who is attending our AfterBurn event and plans to eat the meals to please pre-register by Monday, September 26. Click here to register.
