BENEFITING: FACE IT SIOUX FALLS

EVENT: March Into The Light 2014

EVENT DATE: Sep 06, 2014

David Whitesock

THE STORY:

This last July while in Cortona, Italy, surrounded by family and friends, I celebrated the ninth year as a survivor of the disease of alcohol addiction!  Little more than 9 years ago, it was impossible for me (and most around me) to imagine something other than misery, shame, sadness, jail, or maybe even death -- I was so sick and suffering this disease.  But finally in 2005, a confluence of events occurred that put me on a path from darkness and into the light.

Today, I am a happy and healthy survivor of addiction ... 9 years and counting.  So this year, my wife and I chose a quite unoriginal name for our team, but it is fitting. We walk and support the Mission of Face It TOGETHER Sioux Falls because we want more individuals and families to get well and stay well.  We would be grateful if you joined our team either to walk in person or in financial contribution.

My ask is this ... if you cannot walk this September, please contribuite $19 (cannot donate just $9) or some other amount that is divisible by 9 or involves 9 in some way  ;)

Personally, and as a member of the Face It TOGETHER SIoux Falls Board of Directors, I thank you!
