They lost their sons to drug overdoses and now they are trying to raise awareness about this growing problem in Anne Arundel County.

Denise Williams and Anne Youngblood met at bereavement counseling. Both of their sons died from heroin overdoses. 

They wanted to bring more attention to the problem and raise money to help so they decided to set up the "Run for Recovery."

The race is Saturday May 6 at 8 a.m. at Northeast High School.
