There will be tables set up with local and surrounding area support. You will have an opportunity to place your special someone’s name to be memorialized at our event. We will have “The Empty Chair” present to place your special someone’s name on. We have speakers lined up to discuss how opioids and overdose continue to affect our communities locally, statewide and nationwide. We are also excited to announce that we will have a food truck that will be serving up savory deliciousness! Let’s all come together as one to continue the fight against the silence and stigma that surrounds substance use and overdose!

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.
