About this event

This event is open to the public and organized by The Bridge Recovery Center in Fairbanks. Walkers may join us without a ticket. Ticket holders will receive a lanyard, bracelet and event t-shirt.

IOAD is a global event held on 31 August each year. Its purpose is to raise awareness of overdoses, reduce the stigma of drug-related deaths and acknowledge the grief felt by families and friends. It was initiated in 2001 in Australia by SJ Finn who was managing a needle and syringe program at The Salvation Army Crisis Centre in St Kilda, Victoria. It has been run by the Penington Institute since 2012.

Event sponsors include: Fairbanks Wellness Coalition, Fairbanks Reentry Coalition and Careline.
