In Memory of Brady

Steve Leker

Thank you for reading this message. This is about Brady, the son of dear friends, that died from overdose on 12/10/17. His picture is the inset above. Brady suffered the disease of drug addiction until it caused his death at 30 years young. His name is on the list of the sons, daughters, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, friends and co-workers in 2017 that are gone now; a list of over 72,000 souls.

In memory of Brady, I am raising funds and awareness for Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastation the disease of addiction causes families and friends. Anything helps and everything is appreciated.

Shatterproof is actively changing the conversation about addiction. They are saving lives by helping pass laws that prevent more of our loved ones from becoming addicted to prescription opioids and supporting first responders who can rescue those who overdose. Your support helps expand their efforts to support prevention, treatment, rescue and recovery of addiction.

Your support helps prevent the heart wrenching sobs and tears at funerals across the country. Especially like the one at a small church in central FL last year that was overflowing with folks to say goodbye to Brady; a sweet, gentle, non-violent man who liked everyone.

Please support my fundraiser by making a donation to Shatterproof today. Together, we are stronger than addiction. We Are Shatterproof!

We would love to donate to your Appalachian Trail walk in memory of Brady. Our oldest son was a “thru hiker” of the trail in 2016 He began on March 2nd and ended at Mt Katahdin on October 14th. We have had adult children that have struggled with addiction. We love the fact that you are going to honor Brady in this way, and have the funds you raise go to such a good organization in memory of Brady. You are about to set off on the experience of a lifetime!! You will meet so many friends that will become your “trail family” and perhaps experience some “ trail magic” ( you will be learning about that soon!) We’re sure some of your trail hiker “friends” will undoubtedly have had a struggle with an addiction. We hope your journey along the Trail will be as life changing as it was for our son. We would love to see some “trail updates” at some point! Sue & Art Yerecic
