Walk Away From Drugs event takes place Wednesday

Residents who want to stand against drug abuse can literally put their best foot forward at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Seventh Annual Walk Away From Drugs and Keep Kingman Safe Public Safety Expo. The event at Centennial Park provides awareness of the ravages that drug use has on the community, according to Kingman Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki.

There are three starting points for walkers to choose from: Smith's Food & Drug at 3490 Stockton Hill Road and Firefighter Park at 2001 Detroit Ave., are both nine-tenths of a mile from Centennial Park and Mother Road Harley-Davidson at 2501 Beverly Ave., which is three-tenths of a mile.
