HOW WE BEGAN
Listen to Matt Howe, Program Director of The Plymouth House, talk about the 1st Climb Above Addiction, which raised $7,000 for scholarships to
The Plymouth House, putting two people through treatment.
WHAT WE DO
We seek to raise awareness of the addiction epidemic and to Climb Above Addiction by supporting prevention and recovery in collaboration with our community partners. The $10,000 raised from the 2019 Climb Above Addiction team (photo: bottom left) contributed to the work of CADY (Communities for Alcohol- and Drug-Free Youth). Their mission is to prevent and reduce youth alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and to promote healthy environments and promising futures. Below is a video of Alex's Story, a young man who struggled with addiction and tells his story through the work of CADY.
WHO WE ARE
We are Plymouth State University social entrepreneurs. Our goal is to raise awareness and funds to fight the addiction crisis. In an event similar to a fundraiser walk or 5K run, each team or participant gathers donations from sponsors to support a day of activities which symbolize "Climbing Above Addiction." Participants can "Climb Above Addiction" from anywhere in the world by gaining sponsors and donating online and attending our ONLINE event on Saturday, April 17 2021, from 11 am-3 pm EST, sponsored by Plymouth State University.
In 2020 Climb Above Addiction went virtual with over 30 different activities.
Create a Team to Climb to support prevention and recovery from addiction.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 for CADY's Restorative Justice (Court Diversion) program, which gives a chance for first-time youth offenders to develop real-life skills and prevent future risky behaviors.
