No Mas - walk against drugs

The walkers are coming down the road.

The walk was around 13 miles and the pace was fast. The walkers didn't have the time to come to our tables, we had to go to them on the streets with the refreshments. We were really busy and didn't get the chance to take many photos.
One of Prabhu's coworkers told him an interesting story about the walk. When walkers spotted needles along the route (just one side of the road), police officers would come and pick them up. The needles filled half a bucket at the final destination. There's no question that this walk and other pro-active events to keep people off of drugs is needed here.
