ABOUT STATEMENT: Dating abuse is an epidemic among today’s youth. Many young men and women feel like they don’t measure up in looks, school performance and relationships. Statement offers two powerful life-changing programs designed to help young women and men rise above these statistics.  The REDFLAG and CONTROL programs are designed to educate youth ages 12-24. These programs are packed with great topics to help youth learn day-to-day leadership skills such as creative self-expression, community service, conflict resolution and how to avoid abusive relationships.  These seven-week courses are taught in a fun atmosphere amongst peers. The REDFLAG and CONTROL programs empower youth to recognize who they are, and their amazing value and potential.  Statement is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing dating abuse while teaching leadership and character development among today’s youth.

Lay It Out Events is proud to support a local nonprofit at every one of our events, festivals and races and committed to giving back to the community, Lay It Out Events donates a portion of each event’s proceeds to charity. Through our beneficiaries, we raise awareness and much-needed funds for vital nonprofit groups across the Northwest. As a result, we have donated over $205,000 to local charities over the past 8 years.
