Let’s work together to make this years Walk/Run with the Angels the biggest and most memorable yet.

2017 Honorary Co-Chair, Tony Luke, Jr.
Philadelphians associate the name Tony Luke with restaurants but for the past several months, the famous family has been struggling to come to grips with the loss of a loved one to an opioid overdose. In March, he lost his son Tony to a heroin overdose.
Now, he’s announcing a new Brown and White Initiative to end the stigma of heroin addiction.
Tony is encouraging anyone who has lost a loved one to heroin to create and wear a brown and white item, and share it through social media using #BrownAndWhite.
Tony said the #BrownAndWhite initiative is not designed to be a charity, but a platform to launch conversations between survivors and the general public. Tony says he chose the colors brown and white because they are the colors of heroin.
I want to let others who have lost a loved one to this dreadful disease know they are not alone. These people have a name and they have a voice and I’m tired of hiding that. I won’t hide it, and I ask people, don’t hide it. Yell that person’s name, do not be ashamed, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Let the world know that these are people and they need to be helped. They don’t need to be judged!

We lose a life every 4 minutes.
While recovery from addiction is a reality, over 350 Americans die from alcohol or drugs each day – some 135,000 people every year – more than the number who die from either homicides or motor vehicle accidents. Another 22 million Americans are still suffering from addiction and the majority never receive any help.
Regardless of the paths people have chosen to achieve recovery, their lives and the lives of their families, friends, neighbors, co-workers and communities are vastly improved as a result. They are the living proof that there are real solutions to the devastation of addiction
This year’s Walk/Run with the Angels is dedicated to honoring those in long term recovery as well as the angels we have lost to the disease of addiction.
We are raising funds that will be used to assist individuals who are ready to change their lives by entering treatment, and 100% of proceeds will be used to assist families, which includes scholarships, medical assistance, housing assistance, educational programs and community awareness.
