GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- With the growing drug epidemic, a group of families are doing what they can to help.

“Just to bring awareness to the opioid problem and the overdoses happening in our area,” Tammy Hotch said.

Tomorrow they will be holding an Overdose Awareness Day Walk in Grants Pass.

"We just want to see the stigma removed from addicts -- they are in a battle they are not useless," Hotch said.

The walk starts at 9 am.

Those interested can meet in the back parking lot of the John L. Scott Real Estate Building.

The walk will be followed by an informational rally at the River Valley Community Church.
