Roberto is dedicating his efforts for 2018 to Alex Reichman (with permission from his family) to showcase that we do recover. Alex passed away in late 2016 from natural causes after having managed to come back from a very dark place and landing up in the South African prison system due to his addiction, he managed to find recovery, reunite with his family, get a regular job, cultivate friendships, find a soulmate, purchase a car, among other things.

This ties in closely with what The Recovery Foundation believes in, finding loving connections with others and having a purpose in life allows us all an opportunity to recover from our circumstances.

Please back Roberto in celebrating Alex’s life and example by supporting The Recovery Foundation as he takes on these challenges to help others who’ve lost more than their hopes and dreams.

Thank you.
