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. I am thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail starting in March in 2019, a distance of 2190 miles crossing 14 states. Will you make each mile walked or each state line crossed meaningful to Brady's memory with a donation? 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!
