Adam’s Place Needs Community Support for 1st Annual “Build Strong Hearts” 5K Fundraiser

Adam’s Place is gearing up for its 1st annual “Build Strong Hearts” 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser at Springs Preserve

The event occurs on Saturday November 14th, 2020 and will be a combination of a virtual/real race so participants can take part and donate from across the country and around the world!

100% of net proceeds from this inaugural race will be donated to Adam’s Place. This comes as the nonprofit is in need of financial support from the community more than ever before. Since 2009, Adam’s Place has provided peer support programs to children, teens, and families coping with loss throughout the Las Vegas Valley.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the staff and volunteer facilitators at Adam’s Place have launched “Telehealth” programs & services, including bi-monthly Zoom “Camp Cope” support meetings. These virtual meetings discuss a variety of themes, aimed at building community connections so participants know they are not alone during these challenging times. The nonprofit also continues to provide quarterly workshops on healthy coping skills for adults, along with training for teachers, counselors and social workers. Adam’s Place will also be expanding its in-school “Camp Cope” program to nine campuses in Clark County this fall.

To ensure all these programs & services are available at no charge to our kids, teens and families, Adam’s Place needs your financial support. One way to do this is become part of the nonprofit’s “Superhero Club. Donors can sponsor programs year-round by committing to giving just $10 a month.

Through race registrations and corporate sponsorships for the upcoming “Build Strong Hearts 5K”, the nonprofit will also be able to continue its mission for the rest of 2020 and beyond. To register for “Build Strong Hearts 5K”, go to active.com. For sponsorship information, email Beth Baughan at Beth@AdamsPlaceLV.org.

The event will take place at Springs Preserve on Saturday November 14, 2020.
