Addiction Awareness Walk

Help us welcome Jessie Grieb to Key West Friday at 10 a.m. at the Southernmost Point and at 11 a.m. at the Truman Waterfront Amphitheater.

Jessie Grieb lost her brother to an overdose. She lost a boyfriend to an overdose. She struggles with addiction herself. Today, she finds healing in walking. She has walked hundreds of miles and has a few hundred more to go to reach a goal she set for herself. She started in Fort Kent Maine and will finish in Key West. Her mission is to raise awareness about addiction and encourage others to find their own healing way to recovery.

Addiction affects people differently, but the consequences are always the same. It always leads to self destruction. If you're lucky you survive and turn your life around. We salute young people like Jessie and we hope her story helps someone else who is struggling.  #addictionawarenesswalk #JessieGrieb #opioidepidemic #opioidcrisis
