Newmark is proud to announce its participation in the Shatterproof Rise Against Addiction 5K Run/Walk on October 1, 2017 at 84 Hudson River Park.
Nearly 3,000 walkers and runners gathered in solidarity to support families who have lost a loved one due to addiction, and to celebrate those who have recovered. Newmark is proud to have sponsored this event in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization focused on ending the addiction epidemic in the United States and the devastation that it causes to families. Newmark’s support contributed to significant capital raised for the organization’s mission to advocate for change in recovery programs and to expand access to treatment.
“We are honored to show our support to an organization aimed at helping those who are battling addiction,” Said Newmark President, New York Tri-State Region David Falk. “This is a crucial initiative that we should all get behind to help raise awareness for an epidemic that affects so many individuals and families across the country.”
“We are extremely grateful to all of Newmark’s employees, friends and family who have helped bring Shatterproof’s mission to light,” said Newmark Vice Chairman Michael Ippolito. “We look forward to continuing to lend a helping hand, both to this organization and others that support this cause, to continue expanding the scope of the fight against addiction.”
