THE STORY:

For the first 6 months in 2016, the number of confirmed cases of unintentional overdose deaths was 488 according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. This number is higher than in 2015, and does not include the deaths that were never recorded. Since the last few years, these situations are getting worse and therefore it is important to stand up and try to make a difference. Each individual effort helps to save a life and support those who have been caught in the battle they did not want to fight. Therefore I decided to dedicate my First Half Marathon (13.1 Miles in Newport, RI on October 9th, 2016) in the hope to raise money for 2 non-profit organizations that support our local communities. A.E.D Foundation was formed in the memory of Alyssa Elizabeth Dunn who passed away on 5/21/13 at the age of 20 years old. The vision of this Organization is to assist individual and families, educate the community and defeat the stigma. Like Alyssa there are many who lost the battle and left their families heartbroken. Each of them should be remembered and we have to find the courage and strength to make a difference we must fight for the person with substance abuse disorder and their families whose hands are tied and need the support to understand that it is the individual’s willingness to change. That is where the 2nd Organization comes into place. GAAMHA INC is providing Substance Abuse Service in MA and NH. Local service areas include Gardner, Fitchburg, Leominster, Athol, Orange, Winchendon, Ashburnham, Westminster, Templeton, Hubbardston, Lunenburg, Rutland and Barre. This Organization operates Pathway House, a Residential Supportive Housing which provides transitional Sober Housing for individuals who have completed residential treatment and are looking to make a healthy return to independent living. Both programs feature a professional staff, customized individual treatment plans, counseling and case management services. I hope that I can count on your support to help raise money for a good cause. No contribution is too small. Any support is highly appreciated. Please Help me to make each Mile count.
