Los Angeles Angels’ pitcher Patrick Sandoval will serve as the keynote speaker for the 34th Annual Walk Against Drugs on Saturday, October 15 in Mission Viejo. 

With a “Strike Out Drugs” theme, this event unites the City and Sheriff's Department with local schools, businesses and community groups to share an important message of staying drug, alcohol, tobacco and vape free with students and families. 

Sandoval, who was born and raised in Mission Viejo, will kick off the festivities at 8 am during a 30-minute in-person rally at Mission Viejo High School, 25025 Chrisanta Drive. The walk, which begins around 8:45 am, will then take participants on a two-mile trek down La Paz Road through the Oso Creek Trail to Oso Viejo Park on the east side of the Norman P. Murray Community Center.   

Once there, participants will have the opportunity to explore the Community Fair and South County Disaster Preparedness Expo.  This year’s event takes place from 8 am to noon. 

The walk is for all ages and youth in grades K-12 are encouraged to sport red T-shirts in honor of Red Ribbon Week in October -- and the first 1,500 participants at Mission Viejo High School will receive free walk T-shirts.
