Calling all coalitions, prevention professionals, schools, and impacted families! Walk with us to #StopDabbing and prevent youth marijuana use! Help us raise awareness around the U.S. about the link to substance abuse and suicide! Many people do not know the important research on the connection between youth marijuana use, addiction, mental illness, and suicidality!
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2022 - CHOOSE YOUR OWN TIME!
Our goal is to form 100+ teams around the U.S. during Suicide Prevention month!
You can walk with your family and friends in your own neighborhood. Or you can join a larger city team if there's one nearby. Or start a team yourself named after your coalition, business, or a loved one. Or you can simply walk virtually and raise funds for Johnny's Ambassadors.
Who Are Johnny’s Ambassadors? Johnny’s Ambassadors is a non-profit, non-partisan, grass-roots alliance of individuals and organizations around the globe concerned about the harms of youth marijuana use. We are parents, coalitions, impacted family members, healthcare professionals, teachers, and nonprofits who seek to reduce youth marijuana use through education, prevention, and awareness. We use evidence-based, scientific research and experts to educate about the dangerous impacts of today’s high-THC marijuana on youth.
Why Are We Walking (or running or doing yoga or anything you want)? We are walking to raise awareness about the dangers of today's high-THC marijuana products on adolescent brain development, mental illness, and suicide. We walk to show our passion to protect youth from the harms of marijuana! We want our youth to live productive, happy lives. We will be sharing our photos across social media to gain attention for this important issue!
This annual event is Johnny's Ambassadors main fundraiser for the year to cover our operational expenses for the upcoming year!
Johnny's Ambassadors was founded by Laura and John Stack to honor the life of their beloved 19-year-old son, Johnny Kenneth Stack, who died by suicide on November 20, 2019 after he became psychotic from dabbing high-potency THC concentrates in Colorado.
We are forming teams around the world to raise awareness and educate parents and teens about the risks of today's high-THC marijuana on adolescent brain development, mental illness, and suicide.
Johnny's Ambassadors take ACTION to spread the word about the harms of marijuana on youth. Thank you for being one of Johnny's Ambassadors!
