As I embark my 26th year and approach 2 years of sobriety in January, I am excited to take on the 26.2 miles as part of Team Herren Project at the 2020 Boston Marathon.
I have struggled with the insidious disease of addiction. Its prevalence is alarming, its stigma is daunting, and its destruction is heartbreaking.
I will carry the mission of Herren Project with me as I train and prepare for this event in the spring.
Support, inspire and empower those affected by substance use disorder.
Provide resources, guidance and support for individuals and families to receive quality care
To walk with individuals on their path to recovery
Empower our youth to make healthy decisions
Build an active community of recovery advocates across the USA
Herren Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation established in 2011 by former NBA basketball player Chris Herren. Together we recover...as we support, inspire & empower those affected by substance use disorder. www,herrenproject.org
