Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page! I am raising funds and awareness for Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastation the disease of addiction causes families.
My brother, Marc, passed away on November 16, 2018, due to a heroin overdose. Marc battled with addiction and depression for many years after a car accident in November 2010. He was always optimistic that he could win his battle on his own, but the hold that addiction had was much stronger than any of us could have ever imagined. My mission now is to be an advocate for people and their families who need help in dealing with this terrible disease and help end the stigma of addiction.
Since creating this fundraising page in March 2019, I have held two events in Marc's honor: Marc's Mile on 5/5/19 and the Marc Kane Mortal Kombat Tournament on 8/18/19. The amount of support, generosity, and love for my fundraising and advocacy has been overwhelming.
My husband, Jordan, will be running in the Shatterproof 5k in LA on 11/9/19, in honor of Marc, while I will be volunteering at the event. This event means a lot to me, as LA is our hometown and this event is a week before the one year anniversary of his passing. My goal is to reach $10,000 before the 5k in LA.
Shatterproof is 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.
Thank you for taking the time out to visit the page!
