(BEDFORD) - Residents dressed in neon orange, yellow and pink will hit the roads in Bedford Saturday marching against heroin.

Casey Albright is organizing the event.

Those wishing to participate can meet with Albright at Thornton Pool at 10:30 a.m. Those participating will walk about a half a mile to a mile, depending on the weather.

"We are walking to bring awareness to an epidemic that's taking over everywhere and destroying lives," Albright wrote in an email.

Albright lost her fiance Easter Sunday 2014 after he overdosed using heroin.

"Since then I have decided that I will be a voice and try and help other families to not have to go through what we did," she added.

The event is free.

"All we ask it that you wear a neon orange, neon yellow or neon pink shirt," she noted.

There will be free decals, bracelets and a door prize drawing for those who attend.

"Everyone is welcome," Albright says.
