Teaching Kids about Drug-free Sports

I was speaking earlier this week at a Meadows Lecture Series on Religious Addiction and Spritual Abuse and met a very interesting lady, Kellie Schriver, who is doing a very good work. Her organization, TexCan is devoted to teaching children how to stay clean from performance enhancing drugs while developing peak athletic ability. Here’s a quote about their mission:

Our mission is to provide a family and community resource for awareness, education, and information concerning alcohol and other drug use and its effect on the athletes performance, health and wellness.

On the way into the office this morning I listened to the sports news of the ongoing disappointing discoveries of steroid use among professional baseball players. The issue has been with us for a while and will probably continue contaminating the sports world for a long time. Too bad Kellie’s TexCan doesn’t get as much publicity. Check them out.
