KNOWLEDGE IS A POWERFUL TOOL AGAINST DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE!
Please join us for the forth annual Marisa's Purpose Race to Recovery.
This year my family and I have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds
in memory, and tribute to our friend and hero Chris Oberheim.
You can register for this event here (www.marisaspurpose.org), Marisa's Purpose is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating youth and parents about drug and alcohol abuse.
Proceeds from last year's race helped 6 people get into recovery. We have also been able to use funding to host Narcan (Naloxone) educating and training classes, and give away free Narcan.
In addition to all of this, we visit as many schools as possible to talk to the students about the dangers of drugs, alcohol misuse, and how it affects the whole family.
knowledge is a powerful tool against drug and alcohol abuse!
BACK THIS YEAR
Marisa's Purpose 5k Walk/Run or 11.5 Mile Bike Ride to Recovery will start at 8:15 A. M. and begin and end at Allerton Park & Retreat Center in
Monticello, IL. We will have two separate events one event for Runners/walkers and one for the bikers.
All proceeds from this Event will go to continuing educating our youth and the parents. My hope is that we can help as many people possible struggling with drug and alcohol misuse. This past year we have helped people get into recovery, return to NA (Narcotics Anonymous). January 22, 2020 we hosted a Narcan (Naloxone) educating and training class at Bement High School, and plan to host more. I visit as many schools as possible to talk to the students about the dangers of drugs alcohol, vaping and how it affects the whole family.
Our guest speaker last year was Michael DeLeon with Steered Straight from Murfreesboro Tennessee. Mike has visited all the middle and high schools in Piatt County and Douglas County and part of Champaign. Mr. DeLeon also hosted a Parent Academy in Bement and Arthur, Lovington, Atwood, Hammond High Schools along with Staff Education Program for the schools. We had a welcoming response from the students, parents and staff. We appreciate your support for our organization and know that together, we can save lives!
