This event is going into its 7th year after Bonnie McNamara lost her son Bobby Gonzaba to an acute fentanyl overdose. After another mother lost her son this year, a large focus is on getting help to those struggling with the disease of addiction. A team from IMAT will be present to assist with resources for those struggling. This year we will have Narcan , Fentanyl Test Strips, Anonymous group literature for those with a loved one struggling, and for those struggling. We will also have speakers sharing their stories. *please contact myself or Bonnie if you would like to speak* If you would like to attend, please bring a chair , and dress in layers. (Weather can change from sunny and pleasant to windy and cold ) Some small snacks and water will be available. A candlelight vigil will be around sunset. Feel free to bring photos of your loved ones- and if you would like to speak, please reach out or – while there, feel free . This is a place where we connect to others who can understand. With Compassion, Love, and ZERO STIGMA OR SHAME. – Jenn Sisson

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