Tualatin Together is thrilled to again bring Chris Herren and his powerful prevention story back to our community in November.
“Prevention Starts With All: The Chris Herren Story” is his latest challenge to the people he meets, as he pushes them to rethink their perspective about the disease of addition. What if we focused on the first day, not the worst day?
Herren, a former NBA star for the Denver Nuggets and the Boston Celtics, will appear Nov 13 at Rolling Hills Community Church to share his story of navigating the disease of addiction, the road to recovery, and his mission to make a difference. He nearly lost his career and family to his disease, but now has been in recovery since 2008 and has dedicated his life to the cause. Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon is the presenting sponsor of his appearance, which begins at 6:30 p.m.
We invite the community to join us at 5:30 p.m. for a “Continuum of Care” resource fair. Our community partners will provide information, education and resources about healthy choices and substance abuse prevention. Visit enough of those partners, and you could be entered into a drawing for gear signed by Herren.
This is Herren’s second trip to Tualatin. He was in Oregon in early 2018 and met with more than 5,000 people at student assemblies at Tualatin and Tualatin high schools, as well as an evening community event in Tualatin. His appearance was such a big hit, we asked him to come back to continue the conversation about mental, behavioral and emotional health.
He recently released a new documentary, “The First Day,” which chronicles his journey, and his work with high school students.
Please join us for this free event. But be sure to register and save your spot.
