Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week


Every October in Hillsborough, we celebrate Red Ribbon Week.  Red Ribbon Week is our time to commit to living a drug free and healthy life. 

Red Ribbon Week was established to honor Enrique (“Kiki”) Camarena, a U.S. Drug Enforcement Agent who was kidnapped and brutally murdered while investigating an illegal drug gang in Mexico.  A year after the agent’s death, angry citizens in Kiki’s hometown in California responded by wearing red ribbons,showing their support for the war against illegal drugs.  We use the red ribbon as a symbol of our intolerance towards the use of drugs and the abuse of alcohol.
