A PEI Welcome for Chris Cull

On Tuesday, September 2nd we are holding a Meet and Greet for Chris Cull at the Reach Centre in Stratford.  Chris is a young man in recovery from addiction who biked across Canada this summer to raise awareness about the prescription drug problem in our country. It is our turn to welcome him to our beautiful province. I hope that you will join us!

Many Islanders have been impacted by addiction in one way or another. The people who struggle are our family, friends, neighbours, co-workers and so on. Let’s show our support and appreciation to Chris for his tremendous efforts in raising awareness and trying to make a difference.

Below is a little bit of information about Chris from his INSPIRE website: 

My name is Chris; I’m 29 years old from a small town called Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada.

I want to share my experience with addiction in hopes that it will assist those who may be at the point I was, and their loved ones.

About 6 months ago, I came up with an idea to help addicts and their families.

I will be riding a bike 7,500 km from the Pacific to the Atlantic Coast, filming a documentary and internet reality show about prescription drug abuse and how it has affected Canada. I want to show people that not only is the grass greener on the other side, but you can still live your dreams as you watch me live mine. Just remember, if you or your loved one is suffering through addiction, your life is not over. Just because mistakes were made, it doesn’t define you or them as a person.

Never Give Up! Never Quit!

As it happened in my experience, once the individual’s head is clear, they will value your loyalty.

If you would like to come out and meet Chris, please RSVP to Rose at with the number of people who will be joining you.

You can also RSVP on our Facebook event page:

Light refreshments will be served so your RSVP is appreciated to help us plan for an adequate amount of food.

Thank you and hope to see you Tuesday evening at 5:30!

Location: Reach Centre, 223 Mason Road, Stratford, PE
Date: Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014
Time: 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
