Crushing It For CANDY_2.png

Join this year's Moonlit Memory Walk "Crushing It for C.A.N.D.Y. Team"* in support of HHA's C.A.N.D.Y. Cafe program (Creating Awareness and Normalizing Death for Youth). This team is all about championing crucial conversations about dying, death, and grief with young people. 

*The team name is a playful nod to the game “Candy Crush”. “Crushing it” can be used to describe when someone is doing something with great success.  

Why C.A.N.D.Y. Cafe Matters 

Many of us encountered death at a young age without adequate support to navigate our emotions and questions. Today, more than ever, young people need safe spaces to openly discuss their thoughts and fears about death.

 

As a member of the "Crushing It For C.A.N.D.Y." team, you'll help HHA to ensure adults and the young people in their lives have the confidence and skills to have these essential conversations.
