We are Save R Children. Our mission is to stop the growing heroin epidemic that has rapidly swept across nation through programs supporting strategic pieces of legislation, awareness programs and providing comfort and support to those who have lost a loved one to heroin or are currently struggling with addiction.
This fundraiser will also give back to other participating organizations that provide awareness seminars in our schools as well as Narcan training programs and free "kits" to help save a life from an overdose.
Opiates/Heroin take 129 lived daily in the United States. These are not simple statistics, these are your Sons, Daughters, Wives, Husbands, Friends, and Loved ones. SRC was founded by Ken Chaikas after the death of his daughter, Stephanie R. Chiakas by heroin overdose in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Ken has set out to call attention to the heroin epidemic spreading throughout similarly middle class communities, to connect with and build a support network of families who have also lost children to heroin, and to work to see the day when no parent has to experience the loss of a child to addiction again.
