Four years ago NKYHatesHeroin.Com decided to hold a 5K Walk/Run to help us in our efforts to combat the heroin epidemic in the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati region. We were informed by many we had our work cut out for us and not to expect much out of a first year event. We were told by 5K planners to expect around 300-400 participants for our first year event. So we decided to move forward and plan the best 5K we could for committed first timers.

Our efforts paid off! The first three NKYHatesHeroin.Com 5K Walk/Runs were all incredible successes by any measure with all having over 1,600 participants.

While it was clear to us in early 2014 Northern Kentucky was in a desperate situation with a growing heroin epidemic, the continued enthusiasm and community participation in our 5Ks have confirmed our communities are desperate for action. People need our help. Our communities need our help. Our very own friends and families need our help. NKYHatesHeroin.Com is committed to providing that help by fulfilling our mission:

Providing support and aid to those affected by addiction and their families. Partnering with our communities through awareness, resources and education for prevention.
