Launch at Bradley vs Cleveland Game
August 31, 2022

(Cleveland, Tenn). – ATS The Bridge, the ground-breaking anti-drug non-profit announces their mission to bring their message of “Drugs End All Dreams” to the youth of Bradley County at the legendary Bradley Central High School vs. Cleveland High School rivalry the matchup on September 2, 2022. ATS the Bridge is teaming up with Wright Brothers Construction Company, Inc., of Charleston, Tenn., to sponsor the game. The pair hope to bring a message of hope and inspiration to teens in Bradley County. This event will spearhead the 2022-23 campaign for ATS the Bridge, as the nonprofit implements a plan of strategic growth in programming, development, and outreach, building on the successes of a the groundbreaking year that saw inaugural events in the Bradley County area, as well as continued successful partnerships with local school systems. The non-profit participates in many local, state, and federal drug prevention programs (including the National Drug Takeback and Red Ribbon Week) to promote safe, healthy alternatives to drug use and vaping in adolescents. ATS the Bridge will unveil a minute-long ad at the game that will feature teens from both schools. The campaign hopes to bring harmony to the decades-long feud, with its message that “Big Dreams” not “Dead Ends” are the pathway to success in life. The ad will broadcast shocking facts about the devastating effects drugs have had not only on our nation but the Bradley County area, making sports enthusiasts aware of the catastrophic, and very real consequences, drugs have on the youth of the community.
Wright Brothers Construction Company, Inc. will co-sponsor the event. The 61-year-old
the heavy civil construction company will encourage youth to consider trade education through the newly formed Partners in Industry and Education (PIE) Center education pathway available to them through high school curricula. They will also advertise that they have starting-level career paths available to recent high school graduates.
