Leidos Teams With Baltimore Ravens to Tackle Opioid Addiction

Leidos and the Baltimore Ravens have teamed up this season to spread awareness about the ongoing opioid epidemic through a new “Tackling Opioid Addiction” campaign. For every tackle made by the Ravens during the regular season, Leidos and the Ravens will donate $50 towards the purchase of drug disposal packets and supporting Baltimore-area nonprofit organizations united in the fight to keep communities safer and healthier. For every interception and fumble forced by the Ravens defense, the organizations will donate an additional $1,000 each.

“We are pleased to partner with Leidos to bring more public attention to the opioid crisis facing Baltimore and communities across the country,” said Dick Cass, president of the Baltimore Ravens. “We are hopeful that the drug disposal packets being purchased by Leidos and the Ravens will make Baltimore a safer and healthier community.”

Headquartered in nearby Reston, Va., Leidos launched a company initiative in 2017 to help end the opioid epidemic after Chairman and CEO Roger Krone received an employee’s call to action. Krone recently asked the nation’s business leaders to join the cause and sign a CEO Pledge.

“Teaming with the Ravens on the ‘Tackling Opioid Addiction’ campaign helps address an ongoing public health crisis with meaningful action,” said Krone. “This effort will continue to increase awareness of an epidemic that is devastating many lives across the nation while boosting prevention efforts in the Baltimore community.”

The Ravens and Leidos will work together to create public service announcements for the “Tackling Opioid Addiction” campaign. In addition, Leidos will be a game day sponsor for the pre-season game on Aug. 15, and the “Salute to Service” game on Nov. 17.
