The Brown County Recovery Rebels are active again and have organized a very special “Walk Against Drugs” set for Saturday, August 6 in Georgetown. The walk will begin at the Brown County Sheriff’s Office on US 68 and travel to the Kathryn Hanlon Park in Georgetown, 758 East State Street. The walk will begin at 5 p.m.
The Brown County Recovery Rebels, a support group, was organized earlier this year by several people who hope to make a difference for people who want to turn their lives around in their battle against drugs and/or alcohol. Members include Brenda and Brittany Goodman, Mike McClanahan and Kendra Newcomb.
“We fight the same battles every day,” Brenda Goodman said. “I’ve had some wonderful people who believed in me and now it’s my turn to pay it forward, by helping and believing in others who are trying to clean themselves up. We hear almost every day that another person has died from an overdose. This “Walk Against Drugs” is just one way we can show our support.”
Goodman said she wants the community to know that there is support available and that they are not alone in their struggle.
“We are doing this to stop war on drugs,” Goodman said, “there is help available and support out her if anyone wants to stand with us to help fight.”
To learn more about this event and ‘Walk Against Drugs’ please call Goodman at (937) 515-8833 or McClanahan at (937) 515-6211.
