Buchanan Street Takes The Shatterproof Challenge Rappel

On June 15, 2017, Buchanan Street Partners took the Shatterproof Challenge and rappelled down 16 stories at 620 Newport Center Dr. in Newport Beach to raise awareness and funds to end the devastation addiction causes families. Buchanan Street was joined by industry partners at The CAPROCK Group, Hotel Irvine, Irvine Company, LBA Realty, PIMCO and many more to raise $183,000.

Since Shatterproof was launched in September 2013, advocacy campaigns led by the organization and several others have helped influence public policy at the state and federal level to save lives and end the stigma of drug addiction. The community’s advocacy support helped 14 states pass life-saving legislation, drove the passing of the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, important guidance for physicians that will save lives by reducing the overprescribing of opioid painkillers, and supported passage of the federal Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), and the 21st Century Cures Act—all while uniting families affected by addiction and providing a platform for those families to make their voices heard.
