Former NFLer and Foundation for a Drug-Free World Segway Team Roll Through San Francisco's Embarcadero February 4 at 5 PM
Beginning at 5 pm on the Embarcadero at the Market and Beale Street entrance, former Denver Bronco tight end Bob Adams will answer questions and be available for media interviews today.
San Francisco, CA, February 4, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Former Denver Broncos tight end Bob Adams will be joined by a team of Segway-driving drug prevention volunteers to bring The Truth About Drugs campaign to the Embarcadero at the Market and Beale Street entrance Thursday, February 4 from 5 - 7 pm to reach those in town for the NFL’s Super Weekend with hard-hitting information fans can use to tackle drug abuse before it occurs.
Volunteers will be handing out copies of booklets called The Truth About Drugs. They will also answer questions and arrange free drug prevention materials and training for any parents, mentors or educators wishing to do something effective to end the drug epidemic. And for good reason:
- Illicit drug sales in San Francisco alone are estimated at $400 million annually.
- Illicit drug sales for the entire country as of 2010 came to an estimated $100 billion.
- The direct and indirect cost of illicit drug use—including crime, health care and lost productivity is more than $193 billion annually.
- In 2014, more than 25,000 Americans died of prescription drug overdose alone.
Parents who are concerned their kids may already be taking drug may speak to Bob or any of the volunteers for tips on how to tackle the subject with them.
