We Sponsored It, Worked It, and Enjoyed It!
The Plainedge Drug Free Youth Coalition & Plainedge Council of PTAs continues to strive to educate students, staff, and the community about the realities of drug abuse and poor choices.
As part of its ongoing mission, we are sponsoring an upcoming event, “Rebound, the Chris Herren Story.” In this very personal presentation, Chris will share his story in a brutally honest format with just a microphone. The event will start with a 5 minute DVD introducing Chris Herren and showing highlights of his basketball career and his dream to play in the NBA which began to unravel by making a few bad decisions. From growing up in Fall River, MA to playing Division 1 basketball and in the NBA, he will take the audience on his journey from addiction to sobriety. Additionally, he will relate his story to the audience addressing themes of gateway drugs, prescription drug abuse, drinking and driving as well as self-harm. To conclude the event Chris will field questions from the audience. After the speech, Chris will greet anyone who may need to speak with him further regarding themselves or a loved one. (1 Hour plus Q&A Session).
