Up & Out Foundation, Inc. 5th Annual Run for Recovery Run/Walk
On Saturday, August 18, 2018, the Up & Out Foundation, Inc., a Frederick-based non-profit, will host the 5th Annual Run for Recovery 5K Run/Walk at Monocacy Village Park in Frederick, from 8:00-11:00 a.m. The Up & Out Foundation, Inc. is committed to educating the public about the disease of addiction, the consequences of untreated addiction, and the process of recovery. Those involved with the foundation are actively involved in the community to dispel the myths and reduce the stigma associated with addiction by sharing stories and celebrating the success of recovery. The foundation funds those in the community who are in active addiction and need assistance towards treatment, housing, and Vivitrol shots.
The Run for Recovery is a fun event to bring our community together. This is a great opportunity for you to promote your business while supporting a great cause through sponsorship of this very successful event. The money raised will go back into the community to help those struggling with addiction and to provide resources to help prevent active addiction. The funds will be used to host a reception following the Drug Court graduation, provide gifts for the Drug Court graduates, and provide “Blessing Bags” for the addicted homeless. In addition, we also offer scholarships for those in recovery who are transitioning from rehab into a sober living environment. We appreciate your consideration, and we hope we can count on you to support our mission.
The public is encouraged to attend this event. For more information about the event, connect with Up & Out Foundation, Inc. on Facebook and Instagram. Sponsorship opportunities are listed and Eventbrite tickets can be purchased using this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fifth-annual-5k-run-for-recovery-tickets-44242571723.
