Two BHS students, Sigrid Neptun & Lauren Conroy, created the Feets of Strength event, which has become a major fundraiser for Barrington LEADS. Thanks to community participation, in 2013 Feets of Stregnth included over 80 participants, many community and student volunteers, and netted over $2,600. These funds benefited the mission of Barrington LEADS.

The mission of Barrington LEADS is to reduce the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs by youth in our community through education, prevention, healthy alternatives. Barrington LEADS represents a community effort based on the premise that local people are in the best position to solve specific local problems. The group believes that people are more likely to support what they help create, and change is most likely to occur when the process engages many facets of a community in a collaborative approach. Barrington LEADS’ membership has grown to more than 400 members, mostly parents who want to become knowledgeable about teen drugs and alcohol usage and to learn ways to help promote healthy teen choices.
