OUR Drug Epidemic Awareness Walk Across America Map

HERE IS REASON WHY




Our Drug Epidemic Awareness Walk Across America was started to unite every group across the country. To help grieving family members turn their pain into a passion with a purpose. To help the silent speak up and share their stories and loved one’s faces and not be ashamed. To help those in recovery stay in recovery, to help those actively using seek help.  To show our country that even though  we have lost our loved one’s, we will continue to help others: whether it is a grieving parent, sibling or friend to let them know they are not alone.  To show our country our banners are lost loved one’s lives mattered, they were beautiful souls with a disease. Many didn’t even suffer from an SUD, they took one bad pill. πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“.  No one is educating unsuspecting parents and their children.  It is up to us, to Whether it be grieving families or those in recovery. We have to build a bridge to combine us all. Every group across this country. Our walks are bringing attention, let’s grow this TOGETHER.  We are also learning as we grow and we are growing as we learn. Ideas are always welcomed and encouraged. We can do this. This is to save our future generation.  Education is key. Let’s make every β€œnot my child” parent wake up. Let’s get mandated mental health in all classrooms across this country. Let’s combine forces to make changes we know are needed to happen. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜ United we Walk hand in hand

Kick off To our Drug Epidemic Walks Across America

November 22 2019 Las Vegas Awareness Walk

Our first state will be Nevada in Las Vegas. 

On Nov. 22, we are hosting a walk in Las Vegas to raise awareness about the drug epidemic that stole our son’s Brett and Tyler along with  72,000 other beautiful souls that year. We are also walking to get legislation passed to require Mental Health and Drug Awareness  Education in grades K-12. The organizers of the event are in the group that no one wants to join. The loss of our children compels us to save others from experiencing this pain. We are doing this in memory of our own children and to protect yours.

*****UPDATE****** Our Walk was a success. We have many more states now signed up.  

SafeLaunch is a 501c3 nonprofit based in Santa Barbara. Our mission is to prevent childhood exposure to all intoxicants that lead to addiction. 90% of substance use disorders begin before age 18.

Our Banners so far

It takes a Village

We welcome any group. We know it takes a village to bring change. We want to help those actively struggling, those in recovery, and those who have lost family members and friends. 


Our public message is remember those lost, support those who love them, and protect this from happening to more children. This is a parent movement and there are millions of us. The stigma of addiction and mental health keeps grieving parents from coming out of the closet. We are here to say, join us in making a difference. Walk! Talk! Be seen and heard. You are not alone!  We strongly support the recovery community and through our grief we hope to help keep them strong !
