We will have a variety of partners tabling the event such as Harm Reduction Program, St. Mary’s Go Purple, Suicide Prevention, and more! All attendees will receive a drawstring backpack and water bottle while supplies last!

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