The Terminator Run for Youth Addiction Awareness is a 5km run/walk, the purpose being to raise awareness surrounding youth drug & alcohol abuse and to terminate the stigma associated with the disease of addiction.
Addiction and drug & alcohol abuse is steadily inclining. As we clearly bear witness to the increase in Fentanyl overdoses and deaths, with the numbers continuing to rise. It’s understandable why this has left many people and our community feeling at a loss, with more questions than answers.
I believe with education, awareness and compassion we can make a difference in the lives of individuals affected by the disease of addiction.
Creating this run is an opportunity to bring this issue into the light and out of the shadows. No longer should those affected hide in shame, embarrassment and self loathing. Believing there is no hope.
Because there is Hope. Hope for the youth struggling with addiction and hope for the family. You are a part of that Hope.

“…every step we take together to raise awareness for youth addiction, we are taking back ground that rightfully belongs to us. As a community we have the power and potential to impact this generation. With every step, we are literally saving lives.” #fortheloveofeverykid
