How did Red Ribbon Week get started?

Red Ribbon Week began as a way to commemorate the sacrifice Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena made 25 years ago.

According to, Camarena worked his way through college, the military and joined the police force. He later joined the U.S. DEA in the hopes of making a difference in the world by stopping illegal drugs from entering the United States.

His assignment was to work undercover in Mexico, investigating a drug cartel that was believed to include the Mexican army, police, and government officials.

On Feb. 7, 1985, Camarena, who was 37, went to meet his wife for lunch, but he never made it. As he left the office, five men shoved him into a car. He was then tortured and killed.Thats how Red Ribbon Week was started.
