YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Braking Point Recovery Center has been announced as the second presenting sponsor for the Youngstown Marathon, which will be held June 4.

Braking Point, 45 N. Canfield-Niles Road in Austintown, is a drug and alcohol recovery center offering detox, group and individual counseling, outpatient treatment and supportive housing services.

“Welcoming Braking Point Recovery Center as a presenting sponsor is the start of a wonderful partnership,” said Race Director Courtney Poullas. “Aside from strengthening the Marathon’s reach into the Austintown area, the partnership also allows us to extend the reach of this wonderful, caring facility into the city of Youngstown.”

Our city is growing by leaps and bounds and by working together, we can accomplish great things.”
