I am excited to announce that I will be running in the BAA 5k on 4/15/17 as a member of the THP Runs Team. Why am I running for The Herren Project again after completing a half-marathon and raising over $1,000 for them two years ago? Because sobriety - and the battle for it – doesn’t end when you reach your goal.
Watching a loved one struggle with substance abuse is a difficult thing to do. Recovery is not a one size fits all process. There are starts and stops and often times many bumps in the road. I have cried tears of sorrow over those in my life who have not gotten there yet but also tears of joy over the unexpected gift of those who have.
Where does someone go when they need help? The Herren Project is an excellent place to start. Their mission is to provide assistance in taking the first steps toward recovery and a life of sobriety, educational programs and resources to increase awareness on the signs of addiction and bring hope for a better tomorrow. They hope to:
• Positively impact the lives of those suffering with addiction by providing effective treatment navigation.
• Educate youth and at-risk populations on the importance of a healthy lifestyle and provide techniques to handle pressure within their lives, their community or their family situation.
• Provide scholarships to programs, clinics and camps to increase self-confidence, motivation and develop a firm foundation on which to build success.
Please consider supporting me by making a donation. Every dollar raised will support The Herren Project’s areas of focus.
Please feel free to forward this on and share with anyone that I have not included that you think may be interested in contributing.
