The misuse of and addiction to opioids is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. In 2019, nearly 50,000 people in the United States died from opioid-involved overdoses. Also in 2019, 4,251 Ohioans died of drug overdoses, ranking Ohio third in Drug Overdose Mortality rates. Each year the number of deaths have increased and the first quarter of 2021 is already trending higher than 2020 records.
Fund the Climb Foundation is a nonprofit that supports recovering addicts' basic needs. Your donation helps patients break free from the chains of their addiction and goes directly towards necessities such as electric bills, prescription copays, housing deposits, getting birth certificates, and other needs. If you are unable to donate, we completely understand; we just ask that you keep the Ohio community in your thoughts as we continue to work to change the world. Feel free to forward this page on to friends and family members of your own so together we can fight to end America’s Drug Overdose Epidemic. We sincerely thank you for your willingness and desire to help in our fundraising efforts, and we hope you feel just as connected to this cause as we do!
