Run to Renew with Team AMP!
On March 23rd and 24th, 2019, a team of dedicated individuals will run The Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon, The Charity Challenge and The LA Big 5K to raise money for AADAP (Asian American Drug Abuse Program) to Change Lives and Save Families. AADAP is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing life changing substance abuse services and other social support services to over 20,000 low-income individuals every year.
Why Sponsor Team AMP?
Because you would be giving people a second chance at life. Addiction has a devastating effect on the individual and their loved ones, and AADAP's services are crucial to meeting this need. There are an estimated 21.2million Americans in need of substance abuse treatment, but 89% will not receive the help they need. AADAP relies on donations from the public to make these programs possible and affordable. The more money we raise, the better we are able to serve our clients! Since we are a 501c3, donations are tax-deductible.
Why Join Team AMP?
Because we need you! Your community needs you. Los Angeles County is the second largest city in the United States and has some of the highest rates of substance abuse. The families and individuals that are struggling need your help to survive. If you walk or run the marathon for Team AMP, you will be able to raise money to save countless lives. For first-timers, this is guaranteed to be an unforgettable and rewarding experience. No previous running experience is necessary! So whether you are a seasoned marathoner or a couch potato who has never exercised, we would love to have you on our team.
