Event Description: 
Ohio has reached number one nationally in overdoses. March with us to raise awareness for the need of inpatient healthcare facilities. detox facilities, and resources readily available to our communities. This is so much more than a march since we will be following the march with a huge rally including stages full of speakers, performers, groups, and organizations. We have people coming from around the U.S. to come speak and show their support at this event. Several organizations are pledging to provide scholarships to those still sick and suffering and we are raising funds on our GOFUNDME page to help cover the costs of transporation for those who receive a scholarship. If you are an organizations we welcome you to come set up a booth just message one of the hosts of this page Andrea Chapman, Michael Pack, Sarah Gee, Kortney Calver to let us know. We do not collect a fee for the booths however we do ask you to make an in-kind donation to our fund to cover any set up costs and pay for the transporation costs of those who receive a treatment scholarship. Be sure to invite your friends & family and come join us.
