Lisa Taijeron or Staff Sgt. Corina Andre at 647-6060/2769. You can register for the run at Hornet Sports in Tamuning up until Friday or register on race day at Skinner Plaza.

Counter Drug Coordinator Melvin Pilarca said of the event, "It's actually a committee of all the private, public and non-profit organizations on Guam. We come together every year to raiser awareness on drug abuse and to fight the war against drugs and it also to remember Enrique Ke Ke Camarina, a DEA agent who was kidnapped and murdered for his work against drugs. This next few years we are looking to try and make a non-profit for ourselves so this 5K is going to help us start off with some funds to helps us with all of the events that we do every year.

"We pay for the red ribbons, the banners and it's really to support the Red Ribbon Week and Red Ribbon Month."
