Woman Walks From Maine To Florida To Combat Addiction
According to WMTW, Jessie Grieb is on a very long walk!
The 27 year old from South Carolina left Fort Kent, Maine in July. Her destination? Key West, Florida. A 2,000 mile walk that will take her from about as far north in the US as you can go to as far south as you can do.
Her goal? Raising awareness about opioid addiction. She calls it the East Coast Overdose Awareness Walk.
A recovering addict herself, Grieb has seen how drugs can destroy families. Both her brother and boyfriend passed away from overdoses, ten months apart.
Walking 15 to 20 miles a day, she hopes to reach Key West by June 14th.
Thanks for spending a year raising awareness about this crisis that has affected so many!
