Goals of the Bridging the Gap Campaign
Addiction is affecting younger and younger individuals each year. Because of this, many young men’s goals are thrown off track, and their ability to become contributing members of society is hindered at an early age.
In an effort to raise funds and better address this unfortunate circumstance, Fern House started the Bridging the Gap Campaign on April 14, 2012. Since then, donations have been used to renovate their transitional living facilities, and offer recovery services to men who could otherwise not afford treatment.
So far, the campaign has raised $231,300 and has helped many since it began.
Help us raise more money for this noble cause by running or walking with us at the Run for Recovery!
If you’re not a big fan of long-distance running/walking but still want to contribute, you can make a donation online at: http://www.bridgingthegapcampaign.org/donate/#menu
