The sun was shining bright as the warmth touched our faces. It was as if our loved ones, gone too soon, were reaching out to us with a hug. People were excited to see each other in person, not just over video chat. It was a perfect day to run and walk a 5K around Indianapolis in memory of those we’ve lost, including Walter “Guy” Justus and Brittany York.
Even covered in masks, you could see faces smiling as we enjoyed conversation in person. It was a much-needed break from the world around us! Relive the smiles (and sunshine!) through the photos we captured.
We are grateful to all that came out to support Overdose Lifeline, Inc. (ODL) and for sharing memories of our loved ones and friends. See pictures here.
Together, we raised $5,500! This is enough money to provide over 120 lifesaving Naloxone kits. Each kit contains instructions, a dose of the opioid overdose reversal drug intranasal Naloxone, Adapt and Amphastar, an info card with valuable resources. These kits are distributed to first responders, other organizations around the state and to anyone in the community making a request.
A special thank you goes out the Justus Family for their work to make the 5K fundraiser a huge success in support of our efforts to save lives and reduce the stigma.
Thank you to everyone for your support to make this important work possible. If you weren’t able to join us and want to contribute, it’s not too late.
