American Legion Stewart Post No. 455 hosted a motorcycle ride to raise funds for the Not One More – York Chapter on Sept. 29. Not One More is a national nonprofit organization that provides awareness, education, and support to those affected by drug abuse and addiction.
Bryan Patterson, vice president of American Legion Riders No. 455, led more than 100 participants aboard 95 motorcycles on a 50-mile journey through scenic York County, beginning at PRS Bar & Lounge in York and ending at Stewart Post No. 455 in Stewartstown.
The ride remembered Beau Miller, of York, who died from a drug overdose on Dec. 24, 2017.
“This event is one of the largest fundraisers to date that will benefit the York Chapter and allow us to educate families on the hazards of heroin, fentanyl, and other drugs as well as provide support to survivors,” Christine Thompson, event organizer and member of NOM, said.
Members of the Not One More – York County Chapter shared photos and background stories of 138 individuals who died from drug overdoses and suicide in 2017 in York County.
Not One More volunteers also provided information to participants about suicide prevention and the hazards of drug abuse.
