Heroin abuse is a dangerous epidemic. Families, individuals, and businesses participating in the Hikes-Not-Heroin event are supporting the following messages:
- Life is a hike, and with each step, we have a choice.
- Heroin is dangerous. Heroin hurts people, families, and businesses. Don’t try heroin.
- We are not ignoring this problem. We will walk with our families and community to raise funds for Heroin Prevention.
- Our community supports wellness. Alternatives are available. No one is alone.
- Unplug – de-stress naturally. Kids should be kids. Have real fun! Go hiking!

Red Ribbon Tributes – Contact us in advance and we will temporarily decorate a tree along the trail with a Red Ribbon in honor of friends and family whose lives are impacted by heroin. Each ribbon will be anonymous, however, those who have lost loved ones to heroin have the option of tying a written tribute to a red ribbon during the hike (please register in advance). Sponsored by Flemington Floral.
Waypoint Sponsors – Business and Student Organizations may sponsor a Waypoint of interest along the trail. Waypoints will be marked on a map and should be interactive, inspirational, or educational for our hikers.

Each Waypoint must be arranged in advance with approval of the Horizon Rotary eClub.
