All Set for Marathon!
November 04, 2017
After two years of taking a road crew role in Bob's mountain biking races to raise awareness and money for Shatterproof, Russ has elected to go all in and run the NYC Marathon by Bob's side for the cause.
Bob is doing amazingly well at Boston College and will graduate in May 2018. BC has a terrific college recovery program that helps make it possible for kids to be in recovery and not drink or drug in a general college environment that is quite hostile to their disease. Kathy and Russ can never express how proud they are of Bob for finding a way. It is an enormous accomplishment.
Shatterproof has come a long way in the two years we have been involved. Shatterproof is the only national voice lobbying for change at the state and federal level. We are working with the Presidents Opiod task force and have recently assembled the head of all major insurance companies who pay for the $35B in annual treatment costs to urge them to create a national standard for addiction treatment that is based on science. Shatterproof has accomplished a lot but there is so much more to do.
Please support the cause. Note that Shatterproof has recently launched a 5K series and we have asked many friends to come and support these races. I have tried to not duplicate my lists. If you have supported the 5K - Thank You!
Bob and Russ Mitchell
