All proceeds from the Red Ribbon Rivalry support drug prevention in Anderson County. Thanks for your support!
Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention recognition week. By participating in community events and raising awareness for drug prevention, we pay tribute to DEA Special Agent Enrique` “Kiki” Camarena. Special Agent Camarena was an 11-year veteran of the DEA assigned to Guadalajara, Mexico. In Mexico, Camarena was responsible for trailing the country’s biggest marijuana and cocaine traffickers. In 1985, he came extremely close to unlocking the mystery of a multi-billion dollar drug pipeline. Prior to the unfolding of his case, he was kidnapped, tortured, and murdered by Mexican drug traffickers. His death is said to be the eye-opener for Americans to the international scope and dangers of the drug trade.
