I'm Steven and welcome to my fundraising page! I'm from Fall River, MA and proud of it. I think a lot of great things have a humble genesis in my city. I attended BMC Durfee High school and am a proud Hilltopper alum! Since first walking into the field house I knew I wanted to leave a banner up on the walls. Many athletes left an impression in competition and sportsmanship, but the one that always stood out the most belonged to a hooper named Chris Herren who scored 2000 points in his high school career! I went on to find my own niche as a harrier for the Hilltoppers which developed my passion for running.
In what I believe to be the most positive rebound from an overwhelming struggle, Chris started the Herren Project, which supports, inspires and empowers those affected by substance use disorder. People, not just from my city but all over, can learn from his story. The guidance and leadership that the Herren project provides is the movement and attention that our nation's opioid crisis needs.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal to support this cause which so crucially needs more attention and I’ll wear the purple colors proudly on race day putting everything I have into all 26.2 miles!
