Description

The Fourth Annual Kick Addiction Fundraiser will be on December 15th, 2019 in loving memory of Bradley A. Semon who lost his battle on July 28, 2016. The fundraiser will be held at the Academy for Martial Arts in Orangeburg.

This year, we are excited to announced that the monies raised will go to Rockland Recovery Homes.

Rockland Recovery Homes is a lifesaving organization with the mission to support persons in recovery from a substance use disorder by improving their access to safe, stable residences with peer and community support. This type of housing is a vital part of the recovery process.

Rockland Recovery Homes is a community organization that needs community support to succeed.

In 2018, the reported number of people who died was 68,500, a little under the 72,000 people who died in 2017 from Opioids. Overdose was the number one cause of death in people under the age of 50 in 2017.

We need to, as a community, raise awareness that addiction is not for the poor, the uneducated, the homeless...also, you don’t need to be an addict to overdose. We have all heard the stories of a teenager taking a party drug and they never woke up. We need to educate our kids that they have no idea what is in the pill that someone is giving them. That one pill could kill them.

Addiction is not something that just happens to another family- it can happen to anyone.
