On February 18, 2012, Jack Kaupp lost his battle with drug addiction. Jack fought what was ultimately a losing battle against a terrible disease that afflicts so many. On behalf of his brother, Nick and his wife are running The Allstate Life Insurance New York 13.1 Marathon to raise money for The Partnership at Drugfree.org. They will be dedicating the race to both Jack’s memory and to the memory of all those who have succumbed to addiction.
Jack’s struggle changed his loved one’s lives forever. They are now focused on raising awareness and helping provide education on substance abuse to those affected by this disease. Their message: we are all going through this together.
You can help Nick and his family by supporting them in their marathon efforts. For more information or to donate to the event, please view below.

This spring, The Partnership at Drugfree.org teamed up with social impact company Outside The Wire and Kentucky’s Operation UNITE in Manchester and Hazard, KY for a series of dramatic readings and town hall discussions to address the issue of substance abuse in a unique format. The events attracted more than 500 total audience members and featured Oscar-nominated actor Jesse Eisenberg, Adam Driver of HBO’s “Girls,” Tony Award-nominated actress Kathleen Chalfant and Broadway actor Peter Francis James to read scenes from Euripides’ Bacchae, a Greek Tragedy about the destructive power of intoxication. Following each reading, a town hall discussion engaged the audience on the stigmatized issue and guided them toward making correlations between the play and the issue of prescription medicine misuse and abuse in their communities. Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) joined the knowledgeable team of experts for the first panel discussion in Manchester.
