The majority of people in Yavapai County are drug free

Yavapai County, AZ – The Walk With Me, Be Drug Free event at Mortimer Farms on Saturday, April 9th, is an annual celebration to raise awareness about the fact that the majority of people in our county are drug free. This celebration is hosted every year by MATFORCE, an anti-drug organization that educates and raises awareness about substance abuse issues.

As part of our broader Stand With Me, Be Drug Free positive messaging campaign, the Walk With Me event is the culmination of activities surrounding a week of awareness regarding the positive aspects of staying healthy and choosing not to use drugs. It will be held Saturday, April 9th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at Mortimer Farms in Dewey. The Farm Park will be open to all families and community members. And a 1-mile Family Fun Walk starts at 10:00 am. There will also be a face painter, balloon animal artist, free food and drinks, and more.



The Stand With Me, Be Drug Free campaign challenges social norms and misconceptions that it is a common occurrence to use drugs. When in fact, the majority of people in Yavapai County choose to be drug free. This week of events purposefully celebrate that fact to help promote a healthy lifestyle for everyone.
