HEROES RISING The Movie

Heroes Rising Movie was produced by the Wega Arts Organization & Helios Recovery in 2016. The theme of the film is centered around a group of resilient kids, each drawing on their own inner superhero to fight the heroin/opioid epidemic. The movie is a tool that can bring kids and adults together to have a meaningful and constructive dialogue about substance abuse. The film was made by teenagers working alongside professional filmmakers in Weyauwega, Wisconsin.

Outreach: Heroes Rising

Almost all of us know someone whose life has been affected by substance abuse. We need to do something to move prevention and recovery efforts from facing the facts to fighting for change, and will motivate kids to view life as a process requiring conviction, courage, and positive actions. The Heroes Rising Movie was produced by the Wega Arts Organization in 2016. The theme of the film is centered around a group of resilient kids, each drawing on their own inner superhero to fight the heroin/opioid epidemic.  The movie is a tool that can bring kids and adults together to have a meaningful and constructive dialogue.

Our key effort is to reach middle and high school students. We are developing a curriculum that is being developed to go along with the movie for teachers to present to the students with the movie. We are asking for donations to get this film and the curriculum/workbook out to schools in all 50 states. The money will be used for support materials, travel, screenings, and marketing.

Together we can give our kids the strength to turn the tide and save lives! MAKE A DONATION!
