Hundreds attend 'Walk to STOP Heroin' in Nashua

NASHUA - Hundreds of people attended a walk in Nashua to raise awareness about the opioid and heroin crisis.

Walkers gathered at Greeley Park and then took to the streets, wearing t-shirts and carrying signs that said 'Heroin Sucks' and 'Heroin Kills.' Participants ranged from infants in strollers to parents that lost an adult child to addiction.

As the group made it's way through downtown, drivers honked in support.

Organizers said the event was free and was meant to raise awareness. A similar walk held in September had 62 participants, Saturday's event attracted approximately 800 people.
