    The Colonie-Guilderland Rotary Club is looking for your help in fighting the current addiction and opioid crisis in the Capital District. We are planning a fundraising event, to promote awareness of the issue and to raise funds to support Second Chance Opportunities, Inc. that is planning
    to open a community recovery center in Albany. It's based on the popular television show, The Amazing Race:
    Amazing Race to Recovery
    Crossgates Mall in Albany
    Saturday, January 26, 2019
    9am - 2pm

    Funds raised from this event will be used to create a Community Recovery Center, a safe and centralized location in the heart of Albany where people with an addiction, their families and loved ones can come to get support, direction and guidance while they are dealing with substance abuse disorders. A space where people in recovery can come and put the pieces of their life back together by; gaining employment, housing and life skills, being part of the recovery community, and learning to have fun and enjoy themselves without the use of substances, which greatly reduces the risk of relapse.
