A service that helps families overcome addiction is calling all walkers, runners and joggers support its service through this year’s annual Portlaoise Mini-Mini-Marathon on Friday, May 2.
Participants in the run are asked to make a donation of €10 to the RISE Foundation and a monster raffle will be held at the end of the walk. All funds raised at this event will be used to support the Portlaoise RISE family programme and one-to one counseling which opened in 2013.
The RISE Foundation is dedicated to addiction recovery in a safe environment. RISE counsellors have designed an education and therapeutic programme to help change the way that addiction is understood and gives hope to families suffering from having a loved one in addiction. Call (01) 764 5131.
