More than 2800 people lost their lives in 2017 in Illinois alone. Sadly, that is an increase of 15% over 2016. Here is your chance to join the fight!

Monies raised will help LTM expand our Drug Misuse Awareness Programs for students.. Even though we have already spoken to more than 50,000 students there is still much work to be done. With your support, we can continue the fight.
