R.Ed.I. Foundation aims to change teen stats from new home in Wheaton
WHEATON — For more than three years, the R.Ed.I. Arts and Education Foundation has used real-life scenarios to educate teens about a variety of issues, including depression, bullying, and drug and alcohol abuse. But until March 8, the group was doing this without a permanent home.
The foundation's actors would rehearse their show called "Stand Up! Change Teen Statistics" at Moves Dance Studio in North Aurora, owned by the organization's founder, Kimberly Farah. On March 8, group members moved to their very own space at 100 Bridge St. in Wheaton. A fundraiser for the organization was held March 9 in Naperville.
Farah started R.Ed.I. (Reach. Educate. Inspire.) Arts and Education Foundation in 2006, but the group did not begin performing until fall 2009. Her own background in the performing arts influenced her decision to form the foundation.
