Welcome to my fundraising page! My family is participating in the Shatterproof Rise Up Against Addiction 5K Walk/Run in Boston on September 22, 2019 in memory of my cousin Matt Giaimo. Matt was (and still is) a larger than life part of our family whom we miss dearly. His personality and smile lit up every room, and you always knew when he arrived.
Matt spent a lot of his time counseling others battling addition, but sadly lost his own battle a little over a year ago. This walk is something that we can do to keep his memory alive while helping others.
Shatterproof is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation addiction causes families. Every dollar we raise together will work to ensure that every American with a substance use disorder has access to treatment that’s based on proven research. The Shatterproof mission is very important to me—and I know, with the support of good people like you, I can make a big difference. May I count on your support? Whether you give $50, $25, or $10, any amount will help change lives. Thank you in advance for your generosity. Together, we are stronger than addiction. We Are Shatterproof!
