Run for Recovery: Helps triumph addiction
 
I joined the Associate Board of Recovery Resources about a year ago after researching multiple non-profit organizations in the area. I was searching for one that not only made a positive difference in the lives of others, but one that was also profoundly inspirational. I couldn't be happier with my decision.
 
Recovery Resources' mission of helping people triumph over mental illness, alcoholism, drugs and other addictions struck a personal chord with me. Having lost a few extremely close friends, I know all too well how addiction can destroy lives and devastate families.
 
It seems as though each and every one of us know someone who has been impacted in one way or another by addiction. With this in mind, this time of year is special for us because of our collective fundraising efforts via our "Run for Recovery" event. This remarkable event is located at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on Saturday, August 20th. My son and I will be running to support those in recovery.
 
Let's continue to work together in promoting awareness for this great cause. If you'd like to join you still have time! Click the link below to register!

It is estimated that one person throughout the world dies by suicide every 40 seconds (World Health Organization, 2002). The National Council on Problem Gambling, citing various studies, reports that one in five pathological gamblers attempts suicide, a rate higher than for any other addictive disorder. Through community awareness and available resources we can make a change in this devestating issue.
