I am running the Newport 10 Miler to raise awareness about the Opioid epidemic and to help end the stigma associated with drug overdose. 70,000 people died in 2018 in drug related overdoses. These 70,000 people deserved better. The stigma surrounding overdoses and drug use hinders prevention, treatment and recovery.
I am proud to run the Newport 10 Miler in memory of those we have lost and in support of the Herren Project. By donating you are joining me in the fight against Opioid epidemic .
