HP-logoWhen it comes to athletic accomplishment in the South Coast, as a road race, we think of Ingrid Kristiansen’s world record or Geoff Smith’s 30 year reign as the course record holder. However, we know outside of road running there has also been big news. None so great as Durfee High School’s own Chris Herren climbing from the streets of Fall River to the parkay floor of the Boston Garden. Only more impressive then his rise to the NBA was the impact addiction played in his life, how it cost him his basketball career and almost everything. Chris’s road to recovery has been an inspiration. His organization “The Herren Project” and their initiative “Project Purple” was launched to break the stigma of addiction, bring awareness to the dangers of substance abuse and shed light on effective treatment practices.
