Road Recovery, a non-profit 501(c)3 established in New York City in 1998, has touched the lives of over 50,000 young people.  The organization harnesses the influence of entertainment industry professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, resources and knowledge. With support from the mental health field, Road Recovery provides hands-on mentorship training, educational/performance workshops, peer-support networking, and "all access" to real-life opportunities by collaborating with young people to create and present live-concert events.  The programs empower young people of all backgrounds to face their struggles and help them develop comprehensive life skills, guided by professionals and supported by a community of like-minded peers.

Jack Bookbinder, Co-Founder of Road Recovery commented "Road Recovery is proud to partner with Hotathon to release creative projects such as a digital music download, created by kids in our non-profit programs, which helps us achieve our programmatic goals of greater awareness by reaching larger audiences, while also raising much needed funds for our charity through this heartfelt campaign."

"This is such an exciting Hotathon, as it features the creative output of participants in the RecoveryTrax program.  The program addresses a critical and challenging time for these young people -- when they are faced with the challenges of building a sober network -- while navigating the challenges of everyday life," said Hotathon Founder, Mikal Celentano.

Supporting Road Recovery's mission, this campaign gives "fanthropists" an opportunity to help another 50,000 more young people. Purchase the song today to 'Play It Forward' for Road Recovery.  The song is available exclusively through Hotathon.com.
