PRLog - Dec. 6, 2012 - ST. GEORGE, Utah -- Chris Herren, a basketball legend from Fall River, Massachusetts, realized his dreams by playing for the Celtics (http://www.theherrenproject.org/)
Off the court Chris continues to share his story with audiences in the hopes of reaching just one person and making a difference in their life. With the release of his memoir, Basketball Junkie, in May of 2011, Chris was approached by hundreds of people and their families looking for assistance in their road to recovery. Inspired by their stories, Chris formed The Herren Project to educate at-risk populations on addiction and help others (http://www.theherrenproject.org/
It is never too late to follow your dreams. It takes drive and follow thru to make your dreams become a reality.
Cord Beatty Stated: We are so pleased to have Chris on our show. It will be a show to remember. I have followed Chris for sometime now and his story is an inspiration to me and everyone I have shared it with. We look forward to the hour of conversation and enlightenment with Chris
Marsha Stafford Stated: Chris has a powerful message for young athletes about the allure of drugs, power, prestige and the pressure to achieve. He shares a powerful story about his struggle on and off the court to manage success and the pitfalls of the fall from grace. I can't help but be encouraged as he rises out of the pit and finds his redemption in caring his message and being of service to others. He is a true example of what RECOVERY looks like he gives us hope that treatment works and recovery is possible.
