2013 Moonlight Walk Against Drugs
The 23nd Annual Moonlight Walk Against Drugs will be held on Wednesday, October 16th, 2013 at 7pm at Elmer Thomas Park. The Ribbon Cutting and Kickoff will take place at 7pm, with the Walk starting immediately after. Participation in our walk is FREE!
The purpose of this event is to raise awareness about the effects alcohol and other drug abuse has on our community. The walk allows individuals and/or groups to show their support for the fight against drugs by enlisting local businesses, agencies, military,... area fire and police departments, schools, and families. Show your support by registering your organization for the Team Walk and purchasing the Moonlight Walk Tee shirt for $10. Prior to the start of the Walk, from 5:30pm-7pm, there will be several static displays and events near the start of the walk, this being the area of NW 6th and Ferris Ave. Our static displays this year will include the OHP, the Crash Test Dummies, McGruff the Crime Dog, Fort Sill Police and Fire Departments, Comanche County Sheriff’s Department, LPD S.W.A.T. Display, LFD, other police and fire department vehicles, several drug prevention agencies and more.
Additionally, Moonlight Walk t-shirts will be available, as supplies last, at a cost of $10.00 for short sleeve. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt prior to the walk, shirts may be purchased at Stripes Division office at 309 SW 11th Street.
We are requesting citizens to organize teams representing their work, church, school, civic organization, etc., and come out and walk as a group. You can contact Det. Chris Harmon @ 580-581-3210. The public is encouraged to attend this FREE event and show support in keeping our community and especially our children drug free. This is Crime Stoppers/Drug Busters largest annual fundraiser. The monies raised for Crime Stoppers go to pay rewards to callers, who provide information leading to felony arrests and crimes solved.
