Mission Statement

RAD is a student based team that stands for sobriety in a pressure free, fun environment- by students, for students.

Description

The Ryan Pappas Memorial Foundation is partnered with the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region to offer RAD (Real Alternatives to Drugs and Drinking) - a program for High School Students. After a drunk driving accident in Monument in 2014, RAD was founded to address this concern for students in District 38. Designed by students, for students, RAD promotes sobriety in a fun, pressure-free environment. RAD nights are hosted at the Tri-Lakes YMCA every Friday night, averaging 200-400 high school students weekly! Now established, RAD is looking to expand regionally - to include other school districts soon. As a Non-Profit organization, we rely on the support of volunteers to chaperone our events - so that we can keep as many teens safe as possible. Thank you for considering supporting us!
