The West Hartford Community of Concern, a combined committee of parents from Hall and Conard high schools, is sponsoring the event focused on teenage binge drinking, anxiety, and depression.
Kathi and Chris Sullivan, together, will sharing their inspirational message of hope, love, change and strength at a community-wide event that will be held in the Conard High School auditorium on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m.
The Sullivans, who are married will share their own stories – separate stories – of their personal struggles with the impact of alcohol and drug abuse, underage/binge drinking, loss, and recovery.
Kathi lost her beloved daughter as the result of a tragic underage binge-drinking incident. She later met Chris, a former Patriots super bowl champion, who after battling anxiety and depression had succumbed to substance abuse that ended his NFL career.
Together they hope to enlist the community to embrace creating increased awareness of drug and alcohol abuse, the importance of developing coping skills and seeking help when needed, and that making good choices is life changing.
All students and parents are invited to attend. This event is being sponsored by the Conard and Hall high school PTOs and the War-Chief Sports Council.
