Former Celtics basketball player, Chris Herren, will speak at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School on Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at 7:00pm. Chris Herren is a motivational speaker, author and sobriety advocate whose basketball career was shattered by his addiction to drugs and alcohol. Substance-free since 2008, Chris has refocused his life to put his sobriety and family above all else. Through his non-profit organization, The Herren Project, he works to educate youth and at-risk populations on the importance of a healthy lifestyle and provide techniques to handle pressure within their lives, their community or their family situation.
In partnership with the Acton-Boxborough Regional PTSO, this community-wide event is funded by the Acton-Boxborough United Way’s 30th Anniversary Fund for Children & Youth. There is no charge for this event. We strongly encourage our community’s teens and their parents to attend. Donations are appreciated to help fund future programs for Children & Youth. See www.abuw.org for further information.
Update: Multiple copies of Chris Herren's book, "Basketball Junkie: A Memoir", are available at the AB Regional High School and Junior High Libraries, as well as the Acton Memorial Library, Citizen's Library, and Boxborough's Sargent Memorial Library.
