JC Runyon Foundation Person of the Year 2014

We are so very pleased to announce our very first Person of the Year, Chris Henderson guitarist with 3 Doors Down! Chris has just completed his second year of sobriety, which is a huge accomplishment in and of itself. But he has maintained this sobriety while on a World Tour with his multi-platinum award winning band.  Our theme is “moving forward” and who else is better to exemplify this? We want to honor him because he is a role model for kids who are living with substance abuse and/or psychiatric disorder. If he can do it, so can you! He will received his award March 15, 2014 at the Memphis Botanic Gardens.

If you’d like to join us for an evening honoring not only Chris Henderson, but also our three scholarship recipients, tickets will go on sale soon! In order to make this an intimate affair, we only have a total of 250 tickets available. Want to make sure you have tickets? Table Sponsorships are on sale now. Included with the sponsorship is 10 tickets, logo/name displayed at table, and preferential table placement. Table Sponsorships are $1250. Contact me at nshaheen@jcrunyonfoundation.com today for more information! All proceeds from ticket sales will be used to provide scholarships to students who are ready to move forward from their recovery process.

Scholar Spotlight – Rian

Rian had visual hallucinations all his life. Starting at the age of 5, although they were very disturbing, he thought everyone saw them. He never told anyone because he didn’t know it was abnormal. That was until middle school, when his hallucinations began to manifest into debilitating experiences, leading to worrisome self-harming and suicidal behaviors. […]
