Rise Up Against Addiction with Me

Team Zach

Team Zach

Welcome to our team fundraising page and we hope you can join our team!

We are participating in the Shatterproof Rise Up Against Addiction 5K Walk/Run on November 17, 2018 in honor of our son, Zachary. Shatterproof is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation addiction causes families. There is no cost to run/walk so everyone is welcome to join the team to participate to support this problem affecting all communities.

Zachary was an amazing father, son, brother and friend whose life was cut short when he was 32 years old. Anyone who knew him will understand when we say that those in the room would be fixated on Zach. He had that funny/witty personality that everyone loves and gravitates to and who felt better about themselves after a conversation with him. We have had so many individuals contact us and tell us how Zach had helped them through a difficult time in their life. Most also mentioned how much his presence was appreciated and that he had made a difference in their life.

Also, after we lost Zach, our entire family pledged to do everything possible to forever honor our son starting with him donating his organs which has helped close to 100 families at last count. We continue that pledge by sponsoring the Shatterproof 5K run to help those other families who are living with this horrific disease. Addiction affects families in different ways; however, the one common element by those afflicted is the stigma and guilt and shame of having the disease. We once heard a doctor say to someone who was talking about addiction like it was a choice. He was very clear that not one patient who walked into his office wanted to be addicted to drugs or alcohol, what a surprise. Society has got to change their perception of the disease if we ever hope to win the battle. ADDICTION IS A DISEASE, NOT A CHOICE!

Every dollar we raise together will advance Shatterproof’s advocacy efforts, provide evidence-based resources for families, and help end the stigma of addiction. The Shatterproof mission is very important to us—and we know, with the support of good people like you, we can make a big difference. May we count on your support?

We encourage family and friends to join our team, Team Zach and/or make a donation today! Whether you give $7,000, $1000, $100, or $25, any amount will help change lives. For those running, please be sure to register and use code Zach to waive the $35 registration fee.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Linda, Scott, Brooks, Brittany and Jordan Davis
