Special Thanks to Skyloft for hosting the Amazing Race to Recovery at their venue free of charge.

The Colonie-Guiderland Rotary Club ( is looking for your help in fighting the current addiction and opioid crisis in the Capital District. We are planning a fund raising event, to promote awareness of the issue and to raise funds to support Second Chance Opportunities, Inc. and their community recovery center in Albany.
Their website is 

Funds raised from this event will be used to support programs at the  Community Recovery Center, a safe and centralized location in the heart of Albany where people with an addiction, their families and loved ones can come to get support, direction and guidance while they are dealing with substance abuse disorders.

A space where people in recovery can come and put the pieces of their life back together by; gaining employment, housing and life skills, being part of the recovery community, and learning to have fun and enjoy themselves without the use of substances, which greatly reduces the risk of relapse.

The event will be modeled after the popular CBS show The Amazing Race, with detours, roadblocks, pit stops, etc. Your team will earn points for completing tasks throughout the mall and some tasks may be judged on time. * But, this is not a foot race and no running in the mall is allowed.

Some ways individuals/businesses/groups can help:

  • Register a team to participate in the event and
    pre-event fund raising

  • Raise funds using the events Firstgiving site
