The Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs (CDAP) is located in Charleston, South Carolina and one of the nation's premier academic centers for the study and treatment of alcohol and substance abuse.
The Cooper River Bridge Run (CRBR), one of the most widely recognized athletic events in the Lowcountry, has designated MUSCís Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs (CDAP) as one of their 2014 Charity Connections! The Bridge Run offers participants the opportunity to help raise money for deserving charities which greatly need financial support to advance their missions.
CDAPís mission - to combat alcohol and drug addiction through research, education, patient care and prevention/outreach - is consistent with CRBRís mission which strives to promote a healthy lifestyle through education and community programs. By supporting the substitution of exercise for excessive alcohol use, our message mirrors that of CRBR. All would agree that one cannot achieve top physical performance while drinking at unhealthy levels.
There's still so much to accomplish in educating people about alcohol and substance use and in combating alcohol and substance use disorders. The 37th Annual Cooper River Bridge Run will be held on April 5, 2014. Please consider helping us by being a CDAP Team volunteer or by making a donation to CDAP when registering for the race. Charity Connection Bibs are available for $150 until they sell out: $30 covers race registration and $120 of this will go directly to CDAP. Every gift, no matter how large or how small, will make a difference and help us help others.
