Shatterproof, the leading national nonprofit dedicated to reducing the devastation that the disease of addiction causes families `will host its 2nd annual Shatterproof Challenge Rappel off the top of Reunion Tower and the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Downtown Dallas on May 13th. Shatterproof hosts the only national event series focused on reducing the stigma associated with addiction and gives participants an opportunity to celebrate hope and come together to support all of those affected by this disease.
Participants will have the rare opportunity to rappel 50 stories from the top of Reunion Tower or 10 stories from the Hyatt Regency roof. Hundreds are expected to rappel, cheered on by crowds of supporters to raise awareness of today’s opioid epidemic and to change the conversation about addiction. All funds raised through the event go directly to Shatterproof’s programs around addiction: evidence-based resources for families, state and federal advocacy efforts, and a strong community of families offering support.
“We are thrilled to kick off the 2017 Shatterproof Challenge Rappel in Dallas at Reunion Tower”, said Shatterproof Founder and CEO Gary Mendell. “Rappelling 50 stories is an opportunity few get a chance to do. That we can do it to bring attention to a national epidemic and raise funds to help end the devastation it causes, just makes it even better.”
The Shatterproof Challenge Rappel Dallas will bring new attention to the opioid epidemic, which kills 30,000 Americans every year as overdose-related death rates continue to rise. All funds raised directly support Shatterproof and the challenge is open to rappelers at all levels, including first timers.
