Over 30 youth came together on Saturday, June 6th to make their idea come to life.  “Circus 4 Real” mazed together over 10 ideas about the myths and dangers of drugs, alcohol and bullying to help prevent these risky behaviors in our youth.  The tent, which led over 225 people through in just about 3 hours, created a Funhouse effect of these dangers.  Check out our video in the post below on our homepage to see the Maze led by our Ringleader!  Photos can be found in the photo gallery.

We are so proud of our HYC youth for making this event a reality.  They see first hand the consequences of poor choices and their drive to protect their loved ones keeps our coalition going strong!
