The purpose of Red Ribbon Week is to present a visible commitment to a safe, healthy and drug-free lifestyle. 

Red Ribbon Week began in 1988 in honor of DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, who was kidnapped and killed in Mexico in February of 1985. Agent Camarena, then 37, had uncovered a multi-billion dollar drug scam in which he suspected officers of the Mexican Army, police forces and government.

It is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country.
