The second annual End Heroin HSV Walk will be held in Big Spring Park from 9am until 11am on August 18Th. The goal of the event is to bring awareness to the opiod and drug epidemic.
The organizers, Not One More Alabama (NOMA) and the Addiction Prevention Coalition, are calling this a movement. A movement toward positive action. Along with the walk, attendees will learn about preventive measures, early detection, treatment options, and recovery resources.
NOMA also plans to unveil their drug education trailer "The Discovery Room." The trailer is designed to simulate a teen's bedroom and includes signs of drug abuse. The Discovery Room was made possible from Leadership Huntsville Small Group, NOMA, and donations from the community and businesses. It is dedicated to the memory of Jay Barton, a 2002 Huntsville High Graduate who lost his life to drug addiction in 2016.
