Red Ribbon Week was celebrated October 26-31, 2014.
Theme: “Love Yourself. Be Drug Free!”
The RED RIBBON CAMPAIGN for Drug-Free Youth was initiated in 1985 following the murder of Federal Agent Enrique Camarena by drug traffickers. The red ribbon was designated as the symbol of intolerance of illegal drug use and a commitment to a drug-free life style. The Red Ribbon Week Program provides an opportunity for communities to unite and raise awareness of alcohol and other drug abuse. RAYSAC is excited about promoting Red Ribbon Week in the Roanoke Valley as an excellent way to demonstrate our commitment to a drug free communities.
