GMO DARE Days

Grandmaster Orange – D.A.R.E.

If you’ve been around San Diego County for a while, you’d be familiar with the DARE Program.  DARE was San Diego County Sheriff Department’s Drug Abuse Resistance Education program. DARE volunteer representatives would visit various public school sites and help to inform kids about the dangers of drug abuse.

One of the things Grandmaster Orange did, was take kids up for rides in his airplane, at D.A.R.E. events back in the day.

DARE is all but gone now, due to lack of funding for the program.  If you’re so inclined, you can read more about the DARE program here.
