Rise Up Against Addiction 5K Run/Walk: Atlanta

Fundraising

Donation Questions

Fundraising is an integral part of your experience and the funds raised are vital to our mission to end the devastation addiction causes families. One hundred percent of every dollar you raise supports our advocacy efforts, provides trusted, evidence-based resources for families, and ends the stigma of addiction. Share why you rise up against addiction with everyone you know and ask them to help you keep our families Shatterproof by donating to your fundraising page.
