2022 Chester County Color 5k Sponsors
Funds generated through this year’s Color 5K will support Chester County’s Community Outreach Prevention and Education – or COPE – program.
Chester County’s creation of the COPE program has proved to be a big step forward in the effort to try and steer those who have overdosed into a treatment setting, which ultimately can lead to recovery.
Through the COPE program, overdose survivors who are being treated in emergency rooms at any hospital in Chester County can meet with a certified recovery specialist within an hour of entering the ER. The peer specialist engages with the overdose survivor and provides personal support and a direct connection to treatment and recovery services.
