Rise Up Against Addiction with Me

Annie Mahoney

Welcome to my fundraising page! Thank you for visiting.

I am participating in the Shatterproof 5K in Reston on October 20, 2018. Shatterproof is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation addiction causes families.

My brother Nick was someone that just felt good to be around. He was smart, passionate and kind, once actually giving someone the shirt off his back. He loved the outdoors, from gardening, hiking and camping to music festivals and concerts.

Nick struggled with a substance use disorder beginning in high school. After his first overdose, the reaction from others, even medical professionals, was difficult for my parents to comprehend. Rather than be treated as the chronic brain disease that it is, people placed blame as if it was a moral failure. Nick struggled with this disease for several years, leading to a final overdose his body wasn't able to overcome. He died on March 25, 2017. The world lost an amazing soul due to the #1 health crisis in America.

Shatterproof works hard to help end the stigma of addiction. 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.

Whether you give $1000, $100, or $25, any amount will help change lives.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Together, we are stronger than addiction. We Are Shatterproof!
