Kim Conte will be cycling over 300 miles in September to raise awareness and support to help The HERO Foundation fight the opioid crisis. After losing her brother Joey to a heroin overdose on September 20, 2017, Kim cycled over 100 miles on the first anniversary of his death to raise awareness and over $3,000 for the HERO Foundation. HERO was able to purchase and train others with Narcan (naloxone) to reverse an opioid overdose, thanks to Kim’s donation. The Heroin Epidemic Relief Organization’s mission is to stop the growing heroin epidemic that has rapidly swept across the nation through their own programs and by supporting strategic pieces of legislation all while providing comfort and support to those who have lost a loved one to heroin/opioid or are currently helping a loved one who is struggling with this deadly disease.
As Kim approaches the second anniversary of her brother’s passing, she will be training and preparing to cycle 300 miles in 3 days beginning September 20th, 2019. Kim will be active on Instagram (KimmiConte) during her three-day journey, so we have the chance to follow her ride along with items to be auctioned off! http://theherofoundation.org/feature.php
