Red Ribbon Week will be celebrated this year October 21-27!
This year’s Red Ribbon week theme is “The Best Me is 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. It is now an ongoing national campaign with the last week in October being designated as Red Ribbon Week.
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 community.
