APA Gives Back

APA Gives Back

In its 12th year, the “APA Gives Back” program provides an opportunity for the APA, its members, and Annual Meeting attendees to support a community organization in the city where the Annual Meeting is held.

If not for the current COVID-19 pandemic, APA's in-person Annual Meeting would have been hosted in Los Angeles. Thus, donations this year will benefit the LA-based community organization Skid Row Running Club (SRRC).

The SRRC was founded in 2012 to provide a running program for the Skid Row homeless community. SRRC provides support to their runners to overcome alcohol and substance use disorders to achieve positive life goals. Donations enable the SRRC to purchase running shoes and clothes for their members and enter them into running events. Skid Row Marathon, a documentary about this organization, is available on DVD, Amazon Prime, iTunes and other digital platforms. For more information go to skidrowmarathon.com.
