Help us Raise Awareness


The opioid epidemic is real in america. Over 2 million americans suffer from addiction to prescription or illicit opioids.  Opioids has killed more people last year than either car accidents or gun violence.  There’s no hiding from this terrible epidemic even on the Cape & Islands. Families are experiencing loss every day.  According to the Massachusetts Department of Public health,  during 2018 75 people died due to opioid related overdose death in Barnstable/Dukes County. 472 deaths since 2010. I invite you to join us in the battle to save lives by educating our youth. Hop on the Boat for a day of fun competition where people can converse and learn more about this deadly addiction.
