Chris Herren and his story come to Andover. This very personal presentation, former Boston Celtics’ star Chris Herren will share his recovery journey with the community. The event begins with a 5-minute film introducing Herren and showing highlights of his basketball career and his dream to play in the NBA, which began to unravel by making a few bad decisions.
Growing up in Fall River, MA, and playing in Division 1 basketball and the NBA, he will detail how his journey dramatically changed and how he then moved from addiction to sobriety.
The free event will be held at 7 P.M. on Thursday, February 7th at the Collins Center, sponsored by the Andover Sportsman’s Club. Andover High School and middle school students are encouraged to attend with a parent/ guardian.
