Anthony Alvarado, one of the Co-Founders of RISE TOGETHER, has been on the path to recovery for the past several years. Throughout his life experiences he has developed a great amount of passion for helping to change the community he lives in; Appleton, WI. At only 30 years old he has already embarked on many different struggles and successes. He has been able to break the cycle of addiction in his family so that he may lead a healthy life for himself and his beloved children. Today, he stands strong behind his company’s mission. RISE TOGETHER is a movement that is advocating that recovery is possible. No matter where you come from or what you have been through recovery is possible. Anthony, a true underdog, has brought this message to his community with his best friend turned business partner, Douglas Darby, to make a difference in people’s lives all across this state; Wisconsin. This message is being heard and because of the passion that they carry lives are being saved on a regular basis by providing a sense of hope to the still struggling addict and helping our youth from going down the same path they did.
