A letter from the Summit County ADM Support Committee:
Are you up for the challenge?
We are asking you to consider a sponsorship for our inaugural signature event this May, the ADM Recovery Challenge, a Subway Series 5K challenge obstacle course. Just as individuals in recovery from mental illness and addictions face obstacles, so too will people who take on this challenge. The course involves running/walking, climbing, crawling, balancing and maneuvering your way through the trees, fields and grounds of the scenic Interval Brotherhood Home property near the Portage Lakes. Proceeds will benefit the Summit County ADM Support Committee, Inc., in its future levy campaign activities on behalf of the County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health (ADM) Services Board.
Each year, over 26,000 Summit County residents and their families, benefit from treatment and supportive services funded by the ADM Board. Providing access to appropriate treatments gives people with mental illnesses and addictions hope for recovery and a productive life.
Recovery from mental illnesses or addictive disorders requires a variety of treatment and support services. The continuum of care includes preventative and treatment services, housing supports, employment assistance, transportation, respite, peer support, recreation and educational services. Federal and state funding covers a limited range of primarily clinical services which leaves local communities to fill in the gaps to provide programs and supports that are equally as critical to an individual’s recovery process.
Thanks to strong community support, Summit County residents have a comprehensive array of services and supports available to them through the ADM Board system. Almost 70% of the ADM Board’s system resources come from the property tax levy approved by Summit County voters. It is through those levy dollars that people can access effective services and supports.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will help the Summit County ADM Support Committee in its future levy campaign activities on behalf of the County of Summit ADM Board. The Summit County ADM Support Committee is a 501C4 organization and as such, contributions are not tax deductible.
Thank you for your consideration.
