C10 - Proclamation for 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® each year. We celebrate Red Ribbon Week, October 25-29, to affirm our commitment to live drug free. We celebrate those who live without drugs as well as those who choose to leave drugs behind and live drug free. This week is designated to talk to our students about choosing a healthy lifestyle to include a healthy diet, staying active, coping strategies for stress, and choosing to live drug free. This year's theme is "Drug Free Looks Like Me." The theme was chosen because it perfectly captures how all of us must do our individual parts to keep our communities safe, healthy and Drug-Free. All segments of the community, health care workers, police officers, educators, school bus drivers, parents… people just like you and me, are examples of what we can achieve through self-dedication, care and commitment. The theme encourages everyone to use their voice to make a difference no matter who they are, where they’re from or what they do.
