On May 14, 2011 Melissa Ritchie's battle with addiction ended. Unfortunately it didn't end the way we hoped it would. This will be our third year to participate in the End Heroin Bham walk in memory of our Sweet Melissa. We walk to raise awareness of this epidemic that has claimed so many young lives. We walk alongside addicts who are winning the battle one day at a time. We walk to fund programs that assist addicts and their families in the hard work of recovery. In grief and in hope, we walk. You can register and join our team, make a donation or just come walk with us. If none of those options work for you, then crank up the Allman Brothers, say a prayer and help us honor the memory of our Sweet Melissa.
