Run For Recovery, Swing for Success

Project Hope: Together we are stronger than addiction!

You are invited! Come to Rocky Knoll Golf Course on June 30 for a fun day of running and golf. You choose the event! There is a 5K Run in the morning. If running isn’t your thing, come golf in the afternoon, after enjoying a lunch hosted by Chicago Uno Pizzeria and Grill.

Maine has seen a three-fold increase in drug related overdoses in the past three years. Every drug related death is preventable with effective intervention and treatment. The continued increase in prescription and opioid addiction combined with the steady climb in suicide attempts suggest that additional infrastructure and resources are needed to curb this epidemic in Maine.

The proceeds from this event will support Downeast Project HOPE, a local support system for opioid and other substance misuse recovery. Read more about Project HOPE below.

WE need your help! Come Fight Addiction through your participation at either or both events. Remember: Together we are stronger than addiction!

About Project HOPE

Project HOPE provides a strong support system for opioid and other substance misuse recovery, serving all of Washington and Hancock counties in Maine. These areas are in desperate need of recovery and support services. Project HOPE collaborates with several local police departments (PD) and hospitals by sharing monies and other resources. They include: Ellsworth PD, Baileyville PD, Pleasant Point PD and, coming soon, the Washington County Sheriff’s office.

After an intake assessment, Project HOPE connects individuals to appropriate treatment options and community resources. Currently both inpatient and outpatient addiction services are very limited and difficult to access. Project HOPE is a grassroots community effort spreading throughout Maine to help bridge the gap.

Healthy Acadia is a 501© (3) non-profit community health organization working to address critical local health priorities, such as Project HOPE, and is the non -profit home for Downeast Project HOPE. Monies obtained through registration will be funneled through this organization to Downeast Project HOPE. To learn more about Healthy Acadia, click here. Learn more about Project HOPE here.
