Allstate Life Insurance New York 13.1 MarathonSaturday, March 23, 2013
Flushing Meadows Park
9:00 am Runner Start

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.

More than 1,000 people participated in the fourth annual Jeremy’s Run on May 31, 2012. The race is dedicated to the memory of Jeremy Daniel Glass, who at the age of 20, died of complications due to drug addiction. It’s also dedicated to the memory of all who have perished from this tragic illness. Over the past three years, Jeremy’s Run has donated $30,000 to The Partnership at Drugfree.org. Our huge thanks to the Glass family for all of their love and support!

Dionysus ProjectThis 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.
