Walk Away from Drugs Description:
Get ready to stride with pride for the 13th Annual “Walk Away from Drugs” on Wednesday, October 27th, hosted by the Bullhead City Police & Fire Departments during Red Ribbon Week.
The Red Ribbon campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program nationwide. The campaign began in 1985 when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena. This incident started the tradition to display and wear red ribbons as a symbol of intolerance toward the use of drugs.
Swire Coca Cola Bottling Co of Kingman is serving as the main event sponsor in attempt to create a brighter future for our community by supporting this visual stance against drugs. We encourage all participants to wear red and hold signs or banners to show their commitment to a drug-free lifestyle.”
