It's time to get those running shoes out and register for this years walk/run and to start organizing your fundraising teams for this year's Walk/Run with the Angels 2017! Let's work together to make this years Walk/Run with the Angels the biggest and most memorable yet. Thank you in advance for continuing to support our efforts in assisting families and individuals seek help in battling the disease of addiction.

2017 Honorary Co-Chair, Tony Luke, Jr.

Philadelphians typically associate the name "Tony Luke" with restaurants (especially ones that are famous for cheesesteaks!) -- but since March, the famous family has been struggling to come to grips with the loss of a loved one due to an overdose of heroin.

Tony is announcing a new initiative, #Brown and White (the colors of heroin), to stop the stigma of heroin addiction and wants assure others who have lost a loved one to this dreadful disease that they are not alone! He wants people to know that they should not be ashamed.  There are people out there who need help, not judgement.  "These people have a name and they have a voice and I'm tired of hiding that", says Luke.  

Tony Luke has accepted to be the honorary co-chair for this year's walk/run with the Angels.

Fentanyl Linked to Thousands of Overdoses
Heroin is being laced with a drug said to be 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine -- called Fentanyl.  According to the Washington Post, "In two dozen of the nation's largest cities, fentanyl is becoming a major part of the national opioid crisis" and responsible for so many overdoses in the area.

Resources for the Uninsured & Homeless

For anyone who needs detox or treatment for addiction but doesn't have insurance or is homeless, COA has launched an online resource. These pages have all the details on who to contact in each New Jersey county, as well as information for Pennsylvania residents. They also contain information about sober homes.
