We have watched the devastation drug abuse has caused this town and surrounding areas and wondered how we could help. It seems as if every other day we are hearing about someone who has overdosed or lost their lives to addiction. Let’s stand up and raise awareness in hopes that we can help educate the community about this horrific issue.
PROJECT PURPLE 5K WALK/RUN
By helping raise awareness and money for Project Purple, you are affirming your understanding that our communities and the young people need help. The stigma that is attached to being or knowing an addict can be overwhelming; often it is the very stigma that stops families from seeking help or knowledge about the disease. The only way we see fit to help others is to begin by being honest with ourselves, and by vocalizing our concern about and love for addicts in our communities.
Please join us on Saturday, April 20, 2013 for the Project Purple “The Herren Project” 5K Walk/Run in Grenville Park. Registration is $15/person, late registrations will available race day starting at 9:00am. The 5K will begin at 10:00, walkers/runners are encouraged to arrive early to ensure a prompt start. Water will be provided for all walkers/runners. After completing the race, there will be food, face painting and fun for all to enjoy. Please help make our Project Purple event one that you won’t forget. We need to raise awareness about this horrible epidemic that has taken over not only this town, but the lives of family and friends.
