Individuals, families and groups from across Illinois will be in attendance to honor those lost to accidental overdose, provide hope for those still struggling, and thank those who are working to revive victims of overdose. Any organization can get information, register as an attendee, or sign up for a sponsorship or resource table at ODAwarenessDayIL.org.
