Shoes were placed on the ground representing the people who overdosed in 2016.
Robin McNallie was overwhelmed as she walked down the sidewalk to enter Glover Park on Saturday. Greeting her were over 150 pairs of shoes representing those who have overdosed on heroin.
As a newcomer to Nash County, the numbers were overwhelming but not surprising. McNallie herself is the mother of a son who is working towards recovery.
McNallie said she was thankful for the support she had received so far in getting her son help, support like the HOPE initiative, started by Nashville's Police Department, and The Anchor Holds, a support group for families of those suffering from addition.
