THE STORY:

  I couldn’t be more excited/nervous to be running the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon with The Herren Project this coming November. Project Purple is an initiative of The Herren Project, a non-profit foundation, established by former NBA basketball player Chris Herren that assists individuals and families struggling with addiction. The Herren Project’s “Project Purple’s” initiative was launched to reduce the stigma associated with addiction, bring awareness to the dangers of substance abuse, and encourage positive decision making to navigate life’s challenges. To learn more please check out there website: http://thpprojectpurple.org  


  Regardless of race, class, or gender, addiction can strike any person at any time. It can tear apart families, friendships, or relationships, making it a sensitive topic for those struggling with addiction as well as those who are close to an addict. I happen to fall into the latter category, and I am glad to share my family’s story in the hopes that I can somehow contribute to the fight against addiction.  


 Addiction is something that really hits home for a lot of people, especially for me.  The older I have gotten the more I have learned about how addiction has affected my family. Several of my family members have struggled with addition. I could detail every single event and hard time that my family has gone through regarding addiction, but I am not going to do that. We all know it is difficult, and we all have our own stories to attest to that. I like to think that we can’t live in the past; we need to take our experiences, both good and bad, and use them to make a brighter future. Unfortunately, more and more people across the US are experimenting with drugs, and even more are becoming regular users. This increase also means that more people need assistance as well as support, financially, emotionally, and physically, to get onto the right track. I want people to get the help they need so they can live life to the fullest. As well as ensure that there are more birthdays and less destruction. Please consider donating to this incredible organization and helping me reach my personal goal of raising $4,000!    


Thank you for everything ! :)
