Owensville woman to bicycle 450 miles to bring awareness to opioid addiction epidemic

Owensville native and IFBB Fitness Pro Jeannette Krupp will launch her 450-mile bicycle ride from Cincinnati, Ohio, Oct. 1, 

She will end her “Break the Addiction” ride Saturday, Oct. 6, at Revolution Cycles in Washington. Revolution Cycles will host a Break the Addiction Community Fellowship Night Oct. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. to welcome the Stay Strong bicycle riders home.

Educational booths, speakers, and kid-friendly activities will be offered. Additionally there will be a dance performance by local MAATT group, along with a kid’s fitness competition and adult bench contest sponsored by a Washington gym, The Competitive Edge. Nashville artist Shannon Tucker will provide live music.

Having personally experienced the effects of heroin in her own family, Krupp has developed a passion for bringing awareness of addiction on individual users, families, and children. 

Through her organization Stay Strong, LLC., Krupp’s goal is to use her talents in fitness, dance and acrobats to bring her “raw truth” message about addiction to students in schools across the local area and across America. She is currently a strength coach at a high school in Denton, Texas, and a former high school volleyball coach at Bourbon, Washington’s St. Francis Borgia, Washington, and East Central College.
