AMP stands for “AADAP Marathon Program” and we are proud to be in our third year as an Official Charity Partner with the Asics LA Marathon. By joining Team AMP you are becoming a part of a group that trains together towards a common goal- to finish the 2014 Asics LA Marathon. The additional benefit is raising critical funds to help hundreds of individuals and families in the fight against substance abuse. Team AMP’s fundraising efforts benefit 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 over 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, with new drug trends popping up every day. Fortunately, there are non-profit, community-based organizations such as AADAP that are here to offer the support needed, and provide counseling and treatment so that individuals can return to living drug-free, productive lives in recovery.
With your help, we hope to raise $75,000 to help support programs that Change Lives and Save Families.
