Rumble To NBA fans, Chris Herren looked like he had it all. Money, fame and a gorgeous family, however, his life away from the bright lights of the NBA court was ridden with addiction to drugs and alcohol. In his efforts to prevent others from following the same tumultuous path he did, Chris created "The Herren Project" a mission to increase awareness and addiction prevention.

Chris Herren and his team of runners are running to make a difference. Every dollar raised will support The Herren Project's areas of focus including treatment navigation, educational initiatives and mentoring programs in the hopes of saving a life and making a difference in the lives of those touched by addiction. Here's THP Runs team participating in the 121st Boston Marathon in Boston, MA Monday, April 17, 2017.
