BENEFITING: HERREN PROJECT
ORGANIZER: HERREN PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
THANK YOU for your support! I am running the 2017 NYC Half Marathon in memory of my friend and brother-in-law, Anand, who we lost in September 2016 to a suspected drug overdose. Anand's battle was long and his story all too common as this epidemic claims so many lives. I hope to raise awareness of this devastating disease, and to help educate young people so their families do not have a similar experience to our family.
I have chosen to support the Herren Project for my run, as their mission closely aligns with my goal of turning grief into positive action. Please join us as we provide assistance in taking the first steps toward recovery, and a life of sobriety, through treatment navigation, educational programs and mentoring resources. We seek to increase awareness on the signs of addiction and bring hope for a better tomorrow. Step by step, The Herren Project team is truly making a difference, one person, one family, one community at a time!
