I am participating in the Shatterproof Rise Up Against Addiction 5K Walk/Run in New York on October 13, 2019 in honor of my son, Teddy Gray.
Teddy was brave and courageous every day of his life. He cared about every human being in every walk of life. He had a million friends all over the world who loved his energy and charisma from the minute they met him. We are shouting out loud and clear to end the stigma of addiction and its root causes. This is what Teddy would want us to do--not sit still and pretend it doesn't exist, but take action like the good samaritan he was and taught us to be. This is his legacy to all of us touched by him.
Shatterproof is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the devastation addiction causes families. Every dollar we raise 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 keeping Teddy's mission alive. 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!
