Pedaling for the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids

by

Earlier this month, Nancy and Michael Grogan, along with other cycling enthusiasts, family and friends who believe in the Partnership’s mission, came together for the Second Annual Ride for Recovery, which took place at Cyclebar in Wellesely, Massachusetts. Together, they raised more than $12,000 to help us provide guidance and one-on-one support to parents and families.

Nancy and Michael are passionate about helping reduce the shame and stigma associated with the disease of addiction as they have numerous family members and friends who have struggled with substance use disorders. Nancy is active in the Boston area in local Alanon and Naranon groups and she serves as a Parent Coach for the Partnership.

Said Nancy Grogan of the event, “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generous donations to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. The funds will allow the Partnership to continue their excellent work empowering families with the information and support they need when their loved one is struggling with substance use.”

We extend a special thank you to Bill Pryor and Alex Klemmer of Cyclebar for donating their studio to host the event and to Chris O., a young man in recovery who shared his personal story to inspire participants as they began their ride.
