Ryan Rybolt Rappels for a Cause
i3 Merchant Solutions President Ryan Rybolt is joining the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce to help raise money and awareness for Shatterproof by rappelling down the side of the Westin Cincinnati Hotel on Thursday, August 7.
Shatterproof holds Challenge events around the country to draw attention to the national epidemic of drug and alcohol addiction. Ryan will rappel with more than 80 other people to help increase awareness and funding for the prevention, treatment, and recovery of this disease. You can rappel with him or sponsor a young adult in recovery.
Shatterproof is a new national organization committed to protecting children from addiction to alcohol or other drugs and ending the stigma and suffering of those affected by this disease. The organization was founded by Gary Mendell, whose son Brian struggled with addiction for many years. Mendell launched Shatterproof in a speech at the Clinton Health Matters Conference in January 2013, stating, “Enough. Enough. No more research ignored. No more Americans suffering alone, feeling ashamed because they have a disease. No more lives wasted.”
