Above and Beyond Challenge

Above and Beyond Challenge

Everyone is being asked to go above and beyond right now, so the Challenge is taking a hiatus.

Be safe. Stay well. We can't wait till we can see you on the trails again. 
 

About the Challenge
The Above & Beyond Challenge, presented by the Adirondack Trust Company, features small group and volunteer-led hikes across the Adirondacks and greater Saratoga Region to raise funds and awareness for the Addiction Medicine Program at Saratoga Community Health Center.

Businesses and individuals are encouraged to take advantage of the scenic geography of Upstate New York, while raising funds to support members of our community working to overcome addiction. Since 2018, the Challenge has raised more than $120,000.

Outings are free and include a committed adherence to responsible hiking with respect to preserving the natural beauty and protection of trails. Participants are encouraged to take advantage of the peer-to-peer on-line fundraising site set up by Saratoga Hospital, although it is not required. Those who raise $100 or more receive a free Challenge shirt! 

Supporting the Addiction Medicine Program at Saratoga Community Health Center
Saratoga Community Health Center’s physician-led Addiction Medicine Program launched in March 2017 and is fully integrated into the Center’s primary and behavioral health services where warranted. In 2018, the program’s first full year of operation, more than 400 patients were served through more than 5,000 visits. Support generated by the Above & Beyond Challenge allows the program to expand and meet emerging needs. As importantly, the Challenge is an opportunity for patients to explore other areas of interest and move above addition and beyond, to comprehensive wellness.
