The Bridge is planning an International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) event in Fairbanks, Alaska, on Tuesday, August 31. We plan to walk from the river walk at Griffin Park next to the Morris Thompson Cultural Center at 4pm to Pioneer Park (aka Alaskaland). We will have overdose awareness presentations, a reading of the names of those lost to overdose around the state of Alaska, and resources available in Fairbanks for grief counseling, as well as treatment options for those at risk of overdose. We will also give away Narcan kits with fentanyl test strips.
