This weekend, join Kids Escaping Drugs to bring awareness to the problem of addiction and to remember those that we've lost to this awful disease.

Addiction is a real problem across the country and here in Western New York.  According to Kids Escaping Drugs, only 1 in 10 people suffering from addiction will receive treatment.

This weekend, they will be hosting The 1st Annual Rise For Recovery Walk to raise awareness of substance abuse while reducing the stigma associated with addiction.

Join them at Canalside bright and early tomorrow morning to join the cause or to walk in memory of someone who has been lost to the disease.

The walk is taking place at sunrise to help inspire hope.

" As the morning sky changes from darkness to light, the illumination of the rising sun ignites inspiration and hope for recovery."
