Walk to Stop the Stigma
August 25, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
MATT stands for Managing Addiction Through Teamwork. The Overdose Awareness Walk is our big fundraiser of the year and we invited many of the local agencies and foundations that work hard to help manage problems caused by addiction. Come walk with us to remember those who have lost their lives to overdose and support those with lives affected by substance use.
Rallying together encourages people to feel more connected. Addiction is a health issue, NOT a moral issue. Stigma won’t obstruct progress once we show there is no shame in an individual’s struggle against substance use disorders. We fight to end the stigma in hopes of ending the losses.
The County of Dutchess Department of Behavioral Health will be supplying Naloxone (Narcan) to those who need it.
Registration can be done online by clicking the register button or you can register the day of the event. Pre-Registration with $20 or more donated will include a gift. On site registration begins 8:30AM at the Highland walkway entrance.
Location: West (Highland) Entrance of Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park
Event Organizer: Matt Herring Foundation
