Black Balloon Day has become a national and international event, bringing awareness to overdose deaths. As with many things with the opioid epidemic, Black Balloon Day began with a family’s loss. Diane and Lauren Hurley began Black Balloon Day in remembrance of Greg Tremblay. Tremblay, a father of four, is the son-in-law of Diane and brother-in-law of Lauren and died of an overdose when he was 38 years old on March 6, 2015.
 
Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the US, with 70,200 lethal drug overdoses in 2017. Opioid addiction is driving this epidemic, with 47,700+ overdose deaths related to prescription opioids and illicit opioids (heroin and illicit fentanyl). Americans are more likely to die of an opioid overdose than they are from a car accident or by guns (homicide/suicide).
 
Please Note – This is NOT a balloon release – DO NOT @-us! It is a solemn remembrance of those lost to overdose death. We agree that balloon releases are ill-conceived, and we know they are bad for the environment. NO balloons are to be released as part of this event!
