We host an annual 2 mi. walk. We have posterboards of our loved ones lost to their addiction. We then all go out to dinner together.
This year we have purchased hand fans in the shape of stop signs that read STOP the STIGMA. We also place yard signs along the walking path with addiction taglines and inspiring statements. It has been very well received.
We are attempting to get the fire department to allow us to release a lantern along the river we walk along. If not, we may just do a candlelight vigil after the walk.
