The RA13 Legacy is the vision and mission of the Adler Family to honor the caring and giving nature of their son Reid who passed away in 2016 after being the victim of bullying, manipulation, and intimidation. Reid lived each day with a caring heart and was an includer hoping to never leave anyone out along the way. After Reid’s death, the Adler Family has been committed to honoring Reid through sharing a message and approach of kindness through public speaking and the establishment of a scholarship program focused on kindness and paying it forward. The RA13 Legacy fund has been established within the Ralston Schools Foundation and is used to fund student scholarships and to provide resources to other projects or activities that promote kindness, service, leadership, and outreach.
Wristbands are given to students where we speak. The red and Columbia blue wristbands say #bekind on one side and #erasehate on the other along with RA13.
#bekind vinyl clings are also given and available for purchase to faculty, staff and students at schools where Reid's Story is shared.
