EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
After 3+ years of sitting on my butt and watching it grow, I've just signed up to run the LA Marathon in March. This will be the biggest physical challenge I tackle since becoming a mom (excluding that whole labor thing). I'm also fundraising for the Asian American Drug Abuse Program (AADAP) while I'm doing it. Please help me get back into shape and support a great organization at the same time!

The AADAP Marathon Program (AMP) is the official marathon team for the Asian American Drug Abuse Program (AADAP), a 501(c)3 non-profit providing critical recovery services to low-income and under-served individuals in the greater Los Angeles area.
For almost 40 years, AADAP has been offering residential and outpatient treatment and prevention programs to people of all walks of life, and from all communities in Southern California, while also offering culturally appropriate treatment to clients who are Asian American. Substance abuse continues to be on the rise, even more so during a recession. Fortunately, there are non-profit, community-based organizations like AADAP that are there to offer the support that some people may not have, and offering counseling and treatment so that they can return to living drug-free, productive lives in recovery.
We need you help to raise $30,000 to support programs that Change Lives and Save Families.
