The OPP and MVDHS are teaming up for a visit from Joe Roberts.

Roberts is an entrepreneur who has battled addiction and is pushing a shopping cart across Canada to raise awareness regarding addiction treatment and homelessness.

He’ll be making an appearance at the Madawaska Valley District High School on September 28th to talk to students as part of the OPP’s Push for Change initiative.

He’ll be speaking with students and taking attendees on a 2 kilometre walk next Wednesday from 10:00am to noon.

Police say the objective is to tackle intervention and prevention strategies pro-actively in students.
