Duo walking 2,000 miles to raise addiction awarenessPosted: Updated:
Two men are going the extra mile -- make that 2,000 miles -- to raise awareness to the tragedy of addiction.
News 12 caught up with Brett Bramble and John Azerolo in Bridgeport.
They're walking from Key West to Fort Kent, Maine.
It's personal for Bramble, who lost his sister Brittany four years ago to a heroin overdose.
"Everybody we meet, it doesn't matter where they're from or what neighborhood they're from, they have somebody in some way that is affected by this crisis,” said Bramble.
They go about 20 miles a day and meet people touched by addiction and loss.
They're raising money for Freedom to Grow, a non-profit planning to build a retreat where people can get counseling in a rural, farm environment.
