This year marks the 28th anniversary of the Annual Red Ribbon March and Rally in St. Joseph County. Since its inception in the mid 1980’s, over 10,000 students and parents have joined their elected officials, church leaders and staff from local organizations to celebrate Red Ribbon Week. It is the most successful drug prevention event in our community. This year’s theme is “Get High on Life, Not Drugs”.

The Red Ribbon March will begin at 9:30 a.m on Friday, October 21. Participants will gather at the Colfax Cultural Center (914 Lincolnway West).  The first 300 participants will receive a free t-shirt and food. The March will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will travel down Lincolnway and the Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to the Kroc Center. A program of arts and commitment will follow.

Everyone is invited! For more information please contact 574-280-7092.
