How radKIDS®
came to Lake Norman

The idea of bringing a kids safety program to the Lake Norman area came from a RAD Women’s class sponsored by the local police department that Karen attended.

Karen attended the 2 day RAD for Women class and felt incredibly empowered after completing the workshop because she knew she then had the skills and the power to stop anyone from hurting her. As a mom of 2 kids, she wondered, “Why isn’t there a class like this for kids?” 

After doing some research, she learned that there were many programs out there, but she was most intrigued with radKIDS®. 

So she out on a mission. One year later? Mission accomplished. radKIDS Lake Norman was born.
