Create awareness on the opioid epidemic and raise funds for Second Chance Opportunities Community Recovery Center in Albany – all through a fun, family-friendly event
Drug overdoses killed 72,306 Americans in 2017; 49,068 from opioids! The Capital Region has not been spared by the crisis. The Colonie-Guilderland Rotary Club needs your help making recovery from addiction sustainable in our home towns! They are excited to announce that they have collaborated with Crossgates – the site of the Amazing Race To Recovery, a fun, family-friendly event where teams complete competitive challenges in stores (with no running allowed).
The event will be held at Crossgates on Saturday, January 25, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Participating stores include: UNO Pizzeria & Grill, LEGO, Best Buy, APEX Entertainment, ProImage Sports, and much more.
A community forum to raise awareness and inform people of effective ways to help fight this crisis will immediately follow the “Race.” Funds raised will be used to open a Community Recovery Center in Albany.
