Red Ribbon Week

What is Red Ribbon Week? 

The Red Ribbon Campaign® is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week® , October 23rd - October 31st each year. It is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle and practice better healthy habits. 

This year's Red Ribbon Week theme is Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free. The theme is a call to action to speak out in support of healthy choices. It also serves as a reminder that we are all empowered with shaping the communities around us through positivity, bravery and strength.
