Kick Butts Day Kick-a-Thon on March 20
The Raleigh Police Department Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) Unit and Raleigh Parks and Recreation invite students from local martial arts schools to participate in a 500 kick “kick-a-thon” to symbolize kicking tobacco and drugs out of Raleigh. The March 20 event will coincide with the National “Kick Butts Day,” a national day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco and Drugs.
Kick-a-thon 2013 will be led by Certified Martial Art Instructors who will supervise the participants during the event. RPD Senior Officer Vince Doxbeck is the lead coordinator of this event. Officer Doxbeck is a certified DARE Officer as well as a certified Black Belt Instructor in the Martial Arts.
Participating Martial Art Schools will have the opportunity to perform martial art demonstration/skits with a strong “Antidrug” theme. Schools interested in presenting a demo/skit may contact Officer Vince Doxbeck, 919-996-1302, by March 4. Participation is free. The event will be held at Lions Park Community Center Gym at 516 Dennis Ave. in Raleigh from 6:30-8 pm on March 20.
