Take a Stand, a 501C3 charitable organization, was started in 2012 by a group of young girls from Lake Zurich who were tired of seeing their community torn apart by the grip of addiction. The group has since expanded, and now consists of six driven, passionate individuals.

Together, Lindsey Dulian, Heather Riley, Megan Hartigan, Cortni Wells, Erin Piasecki, Alexis Beeman, and Kathy Jablonski make up the crew and are all connected through past experiences with addiction and overdose, These young women have since made it their mission to create mass awareness and eliminate the stigma associated with addiction.
