Kid to Kid/SADD sponsored a “Grim Reaper” event at Emmaus High School April 26.
The event involved students getting pulled out of class and wearing a necklace for the rest of the day. This symbolized how many people would be involved in a drunk driving incident. With the necklaces, students through the day could see how many kids were affected as the day went on.

All proceeds go toward the research and treatment for pancreatic cancer. Wearing the T-shirt earns you free entrance to the games played at Southern Lehigh High School.
