SPRING GARDEN TWP., Pa.-- The York chapter of "Not One More" led a memorial walk on the York College campus on Saturday.

"Not One More" is a non-profit organization with the mission of educating families on the dangers of heroin and other drugs.

The Bob Glatfelter Memorial Walk and Overdose Awareness Vigil was held in honor of the son of the York chapter's co-founder, Vickie Glatfelter.  Those who attended were encouraged to bring a photo of loved ones they lost to drug abuse, in order to send a message of hope.

"Just talking to people all the time at these events, it's touched everybody. It's like a big family out here, you see the same faces at a lot of these events. You see somebody at one event and they don't really know what to do or where to turn, and then you see them at another one and they're starting to get somewhere and they can help other people then, too," said Travis Lyle, a supporter of the event.

There was also a remembrance ceremony and speakers addressing the crowd at the emotional event.
