BENEFITING: Nevada Homes for Youth Inc
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
Compared to the rest of the United States, the youth of Nevada have had significantly higher rates overall in illicit drug use, marijuana use and non-medical use of pain relievers. We have the tools and the know-how to help these teens prevent and/or recover from addiction and substance abuse — if we make it a priority.
Nevada Homes for Youth is a non-profit organization dedicated to Nevada Homes for Youth is a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing essential substance abuse treatment programs and resources to at-risk teens struggling with addiction.
This year, join us in solidarity to run the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon or 1/2 Marathon, and help us continue to raise awareness about the teen substance abuse epidemic, and the importance of recovery. We've chosen to participate in the race because recovery is a long and arduous road, but it is possible. We hope to not only increase awareness of the hard truth that so many teens struggle with addiction , but to also celebrate those who have fought to recover. And now, we're hoping that you will lend your support, no matter how big or small.
