I saw the flyer for this event in the lobby of my condo, yesterday. I've done the Willis Tower Climba and this event resonated with me because it's local and gives me the option to climb 100 flights of stairs again with a bit of breather in between, and is for a great local cause.
Per the Step up for Recovery website, "There are 23.5 million people in the U.S. struggling with addiction, yet only 11% will actually receive treatment."
"PEER Services has been providing addiction prevention and treatment services to residents of northern Cook County since 1975. We are committed to reducing stigma, treating all our clients with dignity and providing high-quality and affordable treatment to teens and adults. We never turn anyone away due to their inability to pay."
PEER Services is a non-profit 501c3 organization. All donations are tax deductibe as permitted by law.
Proceeds from this event will provide treatment scholarships for teens and adults seeking help for their addiction.
Back to my own words. Please take a moment and donate to this impressive cause that can help make the world a better place.
