Melissa Etheridge will headline a music concert organized by non-profit organization Shatterproof to raise funds to reverse the addiction crisis in the United States.
During the virtual event, called the Shatterproof “Stronger Than Addiction Challenge,” registered participants can engage in a variety of activities such as walking, bike riding, painting, singing and hiking on September 26.
Participants can take part as an individual or as a team in the physical or creative activities.
Participants will then be fundraising to support Shatterproof’s mission of transforming addiction treatment and shattering stigma.
“While we wish we could meet in-person for our annual 5k walk/runs around the country, we are grateful to be able to include the entire country in this year’s Shatterproof Challenge virtual event. We are honored that Melissa Etheridge will be our special guest on September 26,” said Kirsten Suto Seckler, Chief Marketing Officer, Shatterproof.
The rock musician and activist’s 21-year-old son Beckett Cypher died in May due to opioid addiction.
