The first step is always the hardest.

Join us in our charity stair climb to confront the addiction health crisis and make recovery a reality for families of *all* income levels. Your steps help them get back on their feet and build a better future!

Date: Sun 10/6/19, 9am to 11am
Location: Orrington Plaza (1603 Orrington Ave, Evanston, IL)

Why Climb?

Addiction is one of the nation’s greatest health issues. For those struggling, there are many barriers. Stigma and shame lead people to suffer in silence, lack of income or insurance leaves many feeling that accessing treatment is not an option. 

The US Surgeon General reported that more Americans suffer from addiction than from all the cancers combined. There are 23.5 million people in the U.S. struggling with addiction, yet only 11% will actually receive treatment. 

Your participation in Step Up does more than provide treatment funds for low-income families. It demonstrates support and advocacy for those living in long-term recovery– a gesture that will provide strength and hope. The funds you raise will save lives– providing teens and adults access to the treatment they so desperately need. 

We know that addiction is a treatable disease and recovery is attainable. With your help we’re able to provide people with new beginnings and a renewed opportunity to live their lives to the fullest.
