The walk is was established in honor of Shalonda and Steven Horton who lost their battle with addiction, and to honor and remember all of our loved ones that we have lost to addiction. We want this to not only be a family event, but a community event! We invite all families, friends, co-workers etc…. and the community to participate. We need to break the stigma of addiction through education and awareness. We can’t think of a better way to honor our loved ones legacy!
If you would like your loved ones picture on a memorial maker to be placed around the walk, please email the photo you want to use to [email protected]
Even though this is a memorial walk, we want to include everyone that’s been affected by addiction. So if you have a loved one in recovery, we want to celebrate them too!! If you have a loved one who is actively using, we welcome you to come as well and be informed and supported. We will have a vendor area set up with people from the healthcare field, mental health, and the addiction and recovery community.
We will have a few speakers, a short ceremony and a memorial event before the walk begins. McKenzie Kuehnlien from 13 abc will be our emcee.
