2023 Steppin’ Out News

We are so incredibly grateful for all of our past Steppin’ Out sponsors and partners. The event has raised critical, unrestricted funds for all of our programs and services. After careful consideration, The Dimock Center leadership has decided not to hold the Steppin’ Out gala in 2023. With events being so labor-intensive and more costly than ever before, we have opted to focus our resources on more efficient ways to raise critical funds for patient care, supportive services, and the Restoring Hope campaign to open Boston’s first men’s post-detox stabilization program.

We look forward to seeing as many members of the Steppin’ Out family as possible at the Road to Wellness 5K Run/2-Mile Walk event on September 9th  and other future Dimock events. Thank you again to all who have supported Steppin’ Out in the past. Please feel free to contact Mary Halpin at mhalpin1@dimock.org with any questions.
