Miles Hiked in Honor of Matt

I’m just a girl,

who fell in love with a boy.

He was kind, loving, genuine, and exuded joy. While for eight years he also struggled with opioid addiction. After reaching and maintaining sobriety, building a new life, family and career from scratch. He relapsed. And on September, 12th, 2017, he lost his battle.

Inexplicably heartbroken but inspired by his strength, I set out on a journey hiking the Appalachian Trail with Theo (Matt’s and my dog) to share his story, to hear the stories of others and to hopefully, bring compassion for this crisis stealing away so many of our loved ones across all walks of life.

Along my way, I visited with different rehabilitation programs, talked to those in the field, those affected and where able, gave out Matt’s signature purple bandana as a symbol of solidarity for those on this road to recovery and their loved ones. In coordination with the trek, we also set up the Matt Adams Foundation, a 501c3, to provide funding and dispersement of naloxone, the life saving opioid overdose reversal drug, and grants for rehabilitation and transitional programs.
