In that year, the third 5K Prevention Walk in Camas was held, Let’s Draw the Line Community Assessment of Neighborhood Stores hosted, and the third Teens Care Too Summit was held at Clark College in partnership with STASHA youth. The coalition held two drug take back events this year at 2 sites, collected over 1473 pounds of pills.
