Make plans to attend Wentzville’s third annual "Walk to Stop Heroin" event on Saturday, Sept. 15. Many of Wentzville’s elected officials and staff have been directly affected by the impacts of heroin overdoses. In an effort to increase awareness about the dangers of heroin use in our community, Wentzville’s Police Department will again host this important walk this fall.
The event will kick off with a pancake breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Holt High School 600 Campus Dr.). Doors will open at 8 a.m. Breakfast will be first-come, first-served, while supplies last. Following the breakfast and speakers, the walk — which will kick off at 10 a.m. — will begin and end at Holt High School. Everyone who attends is invited to bring signs, posters and pictures to carry during the walk.
The goal of this walk is to connect our community with the available resources in hopes people will not try heroin, not even once. The resources will provide valuable information on the signs and symptoms of use, counseling availability and emergency intervention for children during times of crisis.
Registration info will be added to this page soon! To learn more, please contact Officer Jacob Schmidt at (636) 639-2107 or Jacob.Schmidt@wentzvillemo.org.
