BENEFITING: NamaStay Sober
EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2017
In November of 2015 I lost a close friend to addiction. He was athletic, vivacious, kind and just 25 years old. His story is similar to so many other young people that have lost their lives to drugs. Since 2015 I have lost two other friends to this epidemic which is why in January 2016 I founded NamaStay Sober Incorporated, a 501(c)3 charity. It's success thus far is largely thanks to the numerous volunteers that help to put on our sober social fundraising events.
This month, for the second year in a row we are hosting a Sober January to help spread awareness about addiction and to raise money for NamaStay Sober. NamaStay Sober is a Massachusetts-based charity that funds unlimited monthly yoga and fitness memberships to recovering addicts. By becoming a member of our community, members are given access to create a new lifestyle alongside their peers.
We exist to foster community, connection and mindfulness in the space that sobriety creates.
Help us change the world and create a new future!
“The opposite of addiction is not abstinence. The opposite of addiction is connection.” - Nicoletta Longo
