Race Day Recap



Here are the highlights for the 1st Annual Fighting Fentanyl 5k:

  • Including both registrations and donations, over $23,000 was raised to help fight this fentanyl epidemic

  • Close to 200 individuals signed the pledge to only take meds prescribed by your doctor and dispensed by a pharmacy

  • 542 total registrations

  • 323 finished the 5K (despite the heat)

  • 25+ kids ran in the fun run

  • Virtual participants in Texas, Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, and Montana

We saw the morning as an awareness event disguised as a 5K. Our hope was that participants took away a few new pieces of information about the dangers of illicit counterfeit pills and then shared them with 10 people , and then those people could share with 10 more people, so that slowly but surely we can spread awareness and together, help to save lives.

We had a special balloon release tribute to remember the 86 lives that were lost primarily due to illicit fentanyl in Johnson County in 2021

The event included representation from 6 bereaved families in our community who lost loved ones to this epidemic.
