Addiction has had a profound impact on my life in a number of ways. The most tragic impact was the loss of my baby brother, Jacob, in 2016. Jacob was only 20 years old and 3 weeks out of rehab when he accidentally overdosed. Nothing has, or ever will be the same without Jacob. However, his loss has inspired me to be a bigger advocate for individuals and families battling addiction than ever before. I am so grateful to have found, and been welcomed with open arms, by Team Herren Project. I know Jacob will be with me every step of the way during the 2020 Boston Marathon.
