Proceeds support initiatives to help individuals in recovery from addiction receive scholarships to yoga and fitness studios
At Harry Della Russo Stadium on September 24, NamaStay Sober will partner with Revere Recreation and present their 3rd annual Tina Hinojosa memorial yoga class and dodgeball tournament. NamaStay Sober states, “This year, we combine two of our most popular events to create an even greater impact for those struggling with and/or impacted by addiction. This event brings together our community for a day of remembrance and friendly competition to support NamaStay Sober.”
Tina was a Revere resident, a beloved yoga teacher and an advocate for people in recovery from addiction – celebrating over eight years sober herself! She was also a founding member of Massachusetts nonprofit organization NamaStay Sober. In August of 2021, she passed away due to a drunk driver colliding with her car.
This event is an opportunity to honor her beautiful life and to raise money for an organization and mission she was passionate about. The September 24 schedule: yoga from 9–10 a.m.; dodgeball from 10:30 a.m. –1:30 p.m. To learn more and join the fun this year, please visit the event website: https://www.namastaysober.com/dodgeball2023
Last year this event had a great turnout that resulted in the organization raising $4,250 in donations. The event saw teams from the City of Revere, led by Michael Hinojosa, Director of Revere Parks and Recreation, Revere Firefighters Local 926, 3rd Alarm Pizza, as well as a NamaStay Sober team and other teams, and including one sponsored by Power of Recovery, a local addiction treatment facility. Even Mayor Brian Arrigo joined in on the fun and hopped on a team for a couple of games.
