FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2022 | 5:00PM | Speakers at 6:00

Every August, communities around the world come together to remember those lost to overdose, acknowledge the grief of loved ones left behind, reduce the stigma of drug related deaths, and reduce the impact of overdose. This year for International Overdose Awareness Day, Join Together Northern Nevada and community partners will be hosting an Overdose Awareness Day event which will be held on August 26, 2022 from 5:00pm – 8:00pm at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park.

This event is for the whole community and we invite you to take part in a number of ways.

  • Design the event t-shirt! Designs can be submitted with the Art Design Form
  • Be one of the featured musical artists for this year event! Artists kits can be submitted with the Musician Application
  • Make a donation or become a corporate sponsor for the event. Contact Yolanda Chatwood at for more information.
  • Contribute to our shoe drive! We are looking to collect 274 pairs of new or lightly used shoes for a memorial of “Lost Soles”. All shoes will be donated after the event on August 26th. Shoes can be dropped off at 505 S. Arlington Ave, Suite 110 Reno, NV 89509

There will be music, speakers, community awareness/resource fair, and so much more! We look forward to seeing you there.
