Keeping kids safe on graduation eve, as well as providing a fun celebration, is what Safe and Sober Grad of Novato is all about. The Safe and Sober Grad Night program was developed by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in 1985 in response to the large majority of graduating seniors who were celebrating their completion of high school with unsupervised parties where alcohol was being provided and consumed. Unfortunately, many of these parties resulted in alcohol related crashes, injuries and deaths. In an effort to decrease these incidents, the CHP, along with local volunteers and parents, established an awareness campaign to include fundraisers as well as an education campaign, culminating in a safe and sober all night graduation celebration. Novato High School has joined high schools across the country as a Safe and Sober Grad Night participant for over 20 years. Safe and Sober Grad of Novato is a 501 (3) (c) organization and monies raised benefit each class at Novato High School. This is our 1st St Patrick’s Day 5k/10k Run/Walk and we our hoping to make it an annual event. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. T-shirt ads run $500 for a logo, $250 for a large print of business name and $100 for a smaller business name listing. $100 can also buy an ad on one of our kilometer markers along the route. Can’t make the run? How about attending the Dine and Donate at Pasta Pomodoro on March 16th. Twenty percent of your meal, whether it be in house or take out, will be donated to Safe and Sober Grad of Novato. Thank you for your support.
