Continuing with tradition, the day will begin with an
8:00 am rally at Mission Viejo High School (25025 Chrisanta Dr).
After the rally, the crowd of more than 3,000 sporting red T-shirts will form a red ribbon as they walk down La Paz Road, through the Oso Creek Trail. The two-mile trek will be immediately followed by a Community Fair on the Village Green at Oso Viejo Park, 24932 Veterans Way.
"The ball is in your court...
Make life a DRUG FREE sport!"
This year’s rally will feature keynote speaker
Peanut Louie Harper, former WTA professional tennis player.
She collaborated with legendary UCLA Coach John Wooden on the children's book "Inch and Miles: The Journey to Success".
Harper will join thousands in this event uniting the City, Sheriff’s Department, schools, businesses and local groups with students and families to embrace a healthy lifestyle and say "no" to drugs, alcohol, and tobacco use. She is co-founder of Harper for Kids, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based upon Coach Wooden’s Pyramid of Success. Harper is committed to teaching children how to achieve their personal best in life. Their mission is to provide children with educational and enrichment programs to cultivate, inspire and develop leadership skills and promote healthy character development. View video
