Event Description: 
The AARMED organization of Luzerne County, PA is now organizing our 2nd annual Walk for Recovery being held at Kirby Park, Wyoming Aveune, Wilkes Barre PA on September 24th, 2017 at 12 pm to 5 pm. This year we will continue to focus on raising awareness and ending the stigma of addiction. Entertainment will be provided by DJ Baghdaddy, Jubilee Balloons, numerous recovery centers, vendors and resources available as well. Several speakers will be sharing their own stories of addiction and recovery, along with addiction and recovery specialists speaking out on this epidemic we are losing our community to. Let's come together as a community, educate the public, and SAVE LIVES. AARMED Organization of Luzerne County is a non-profit agency who collects donations and sponsorships in order to give back to the community and donate the proceeds to non-profit agencies that provide the necessary resources for our community. This year we will be donating the proceeds to Wyoming Valley Alcohol and Drug services and "VETERANS PROMISE" who is a group that provides resources, educates and advocates for Veterans in need of drug and alcohol services, suicide and mental health needs. We look forward to raising awareness and ending the stigma again this year!
