In recognizing the challenges of recovery, the Summit County ADM Support Committee invites you to participate in the annual ADM Recovery Challenge 5K fundraiser (part of the Ohio Challenge Subway Series). This obstacle course offers fun competition for athletes of all ages and abilities. Get set to tackle the challenges, cheer others on, and support those who are in recovery!

Each year, over 26,000 Summit County residents and their families face the challenge of recovery from mental illness and addictions and turn to the ADM Board for treatment and support. The continuum of care runs throughout the lifespan – from services and programs for toddlers to older adults. It includes preventative and treatment services, housing support, employment assistance, respite, peer support, recreation, and educational services.

We are committed to meeting these needs in our community, but we cannot meet the challenge alone. Your generous sponsorship and participation benefits the Summit County ADM Support Committee, Inc. in its future levy campaign activities on behalf of the County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction & Mental Health Services (ADM) Board.

Are YOU up for the Challenge?
