Sudbury Catholic Schools Participate in Racing Against Drugs Event

April 3, 2008 - 585 students from eleven schools belonging to the Sudbury Catholic District School Board will be participating in a Racing Against Drugs (RAD) event on Tuesday, April 8 and Wednesday April 9, 2008 at the Lionel E. Lalonde Centre, 239 Montee Principale in Azilda.

Racing Against Drugs is a community based drug, alcohol and injury prevention program for students in Grades 5 and 6. This team-based effort promotes healthy, substance abuse free lifestyles and allows children in the Sudbury Community to experience the excitement of racing by competing on a professionally built 1:24 slot car track.

The event involves the use of miniature racing cars on an oval track as well as a drag strip configuration. Students move around the race track circuit via a series of “11 pit stops” where the City of Greater Sudbury Police Services and other partner agencies will have an opportunity to make presentations to the students.

The Racing Against Drugs program was first developed by the London Detachment of the RCMP in 1994 in conjunction with the Ford Motor Company of Canada Limited and the Whitlock/Abby Quality Car Racing Team.
