Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. Although the start end dates can vary slightly depending on the organization and source, Red Ribbon Week generally takes place the last full week in October.
Red Ribbon Week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free lives with the ultimate goal being the creation of drug free America. (Via)
Here in Corona, the theme this year is “The Best Me is Drug Free.” The national Red Ribbon Celebration began in 1985 in response to the death of Kiki Camerena, a DEA agent abducted and killed by drug traffickers. The Red Ribbon Symbol is used today as an opportunity to make a visible commitment against drugs and as a call to action.
Please join us in celebrating the Red Ribbon Campaign by attending the Red Ribbon Family Fun Festival, on Sunday, October 28th at Promenade Park from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. Admission is completely free. There will be carnival game booths, drawings for prizes, live entertainment, vendor booths, food and fun for all ages! Promenade Park is located at 615 Richey Street in Corona [MAP]. All proceeds from this event will support U.N.I.T.Y. (United Neighbors Involving Today’s Youth) Coalition. For more information, please contact Robin Jones at (951) 736-5106
