    As part of its caregivers’ support programming SAGE is now hosting a Caregiver Support Group on Zoom on the first and third Sunday of each month, 5-6 PM. If you are a personal or professional caregiver, please join us.

  • Walk on the West Side (of the Triangle)

    Historic Occoneechee Speedway Trailhead

    We’ll walk the easy trail along the river through downtown Hillsborough to Gold Park (about 45 minutes one way - under 2 miles). We’ll return to a dining establishment in downtown Hillsborough for optional lunch or coffee and return to the starting point. Length of the walk can be adjusted, based on those who attend.
    If you have questions or need more info, text Todd at[masked] or email him at: [masked].

    Please note: In light of the fact that most people have been fully vaccinated - meaning 3 jabs - from now on our policy with regard to Covid is that all people taking part in the walks need to be fully vaccinated. We believe this to be the safest course of action in light of yet another Covid variant popping up. We won't be the vaccination police, but we would hope that anyone who is not fully vaccinated will be honest and choose not to walk or have coffee with the group.
