THE STORY:

 

Dear friends and family,

Thank you for taking the time to check out our fundraiser page we are dedicating to this year’s commencement speaker Chris Herren and his foundation the Herren Project and Project Purple. As this years senior class of Framingham State University, we wanted to make sure we took some time from our busy schedules and were able to shine some light on this important issue of drug abuse that happens in our communities. Please take some time to read a little bit about the Herren Project and why we felt it was so important to help such cause. Thank you for your time and donations!

About The Herren Project: Chris Herren, former NBA player was a drug addict for 14 years of his life. It wasn’t until June 2008 after an overdose of heroin that friends stepped in to help Herren receive the help he so desperately needed, and could not afford after spending every dime he had on feeding his addiction. Chris Herren, drug free and alcohol free since August 1, 2008 continues to overcome obstacles to remain sober and be a better person for his family. In addition, Chris encourages others who may be struggling with addiction to stay sober through sharing his life experiences. Chris Herren’s also shared his story through the publication of the book “Basketball Junkie” and released a documentary through ESPN called “Unguarded”. Consequently, Chris received several calls from people who were struggling with addiction and wanted help. In 2011, the Herren Project was formed to help the people who were searching for a way out of addiction. The Herren project’s mission was not only to help those struggling but also the families involved and to bring awareness to the public about the dangers of substance abuse.

About Project Purple Initiative: In 2011 as Chris Herren was speaking at a local high school there sat a few students in the front row wearing purple shirts. After sharing Chris shared his story, one of the students with a purple shirt raised her hand and stood up. The student thanked Chris for sharing his story and validating to her that it is worth staying sober in the midst of peer pressure, and that the students wearing purple were those who pledge to stay sober each year. Chris was impressed by the courage of those students, so through that experience he was encouraged to help adolescents across the country to stay sober and started Project Purple to help kids overcome peer pressure.
