Former Celtics basketball player, Chris Herren, will speak at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School on Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at 7:00pm. Harren’s career was shattered by his addiction to drug and alcohol, and he is now a motivational speaker, author, and sobriety advocate who has remained substance-free since 2008. Since then, Harren has refocused his life to put his sobriety and family above all else.
Through his non-profit organization, The Herren Project, he works to educate youth and at-risk populations on the importance of a healthy lifestyle and provide techniques to handle pressure within their lives, their community or their family situation.
This community-wide event is funded by the Acton-Boxborough United Way’s 30th Anniversary Fund for Children & Youth, in partnership with the Acton-Boxborough Regional PTSO, and
There is no charge for this event. Teens and their parents are encouraged to attend.
