USA (PRWEB) July 21, 2014
As reported by CBS Local Pittsburgh in the article Dozens Rappel Down Westin Hotel to Raise Addiction Awareness (7/15), thrill-seeking participants raised $100,000 to raise drug abuse awareness by rappelling down a 27-story building in Downtown Philly. 100 people, including some well-known local news reporters, participated in the event at the Westin Convention Center Hotel. Some of the participants shared stories of their own loved one's addiction. One man participated because his son killed himself after a long battle with addiction. After going over safety measures at the beginning of the event, people began to make their way down the building. Some of the participants were even afraid of heights but compared their challenge to the challenges that those who suffer from drug addiction struggle with every day.
Some of the participants stressed that they wanted to expose the stigma related to drug addiction. Their hopes was to get more people talking about it all over the world. Another participant felt inspired because they had come together under one cause. She believed that it signified how people can understand the struggle of drug addiction. A third participant felt that it was for a great cause and was excited to have the opportunity to rappel down a large building. Finally, the man who lost his son was extremely moved by the event and couldn't believe the overwhelming support of his home town. Drug addiction can affect anyone, including the loved one's of those who are suffering. When communities get together to support a cause like raising awareness for drug addiction, it just a great reminder that many people out there care and are willing to help.
