Shatter The Stigma

Many thanks to the 208 runners/walkers, sponsors, volunteers, teams….everyone!



The Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities is returning to our annual 5K Run/Walk and Family Fun Shatter the Stigma fundraiser. This event raises funds to support our programs in prevention, mental and physical wellness, and recovery support. Event Flyer

Many of us know someone who has been affected by substance misuse. A SAMHSA report published in 2015 estimated that 9.5% of those age 18-64 abused alcohol or illicit drugs. Just last year, Michigan reported 2,000 deaths to opioid overdoses. The more we can prevent youth from trying alcohol and drugs and encourage conversations about wellness and getting help, the more we can save lives.

Your support of our work helps to shatter the stigma and get families and individuals the help they need while preventing new people from turning to drugs and alcohol.

Join us at our 5K this year in Clawson City Park on Saturday, June 4 at 9:00 a.m.
Form teams, run, walk, come out for family fun, or just donate to the cause.

We need you to meet our goal of $22,000 in 2022!
