The Stronger Than Drugs Foundation is a non-profit organization led by Professor Bam to give at-riskchildren a way to beat the negative influences of their environment. By providing a positive atmosphere, role models, rules, structure, support and goals through the martial arts, the Stronger Than Drugs Foundation has helped hundreds of kids avoid the temptation of drugs. September 29th in Baltimore was declared The BAMS Stronger Than Drugs Day by then Governor Martin O'Malley in recognition of Professor Bam's efforts to be a positive influence in the community.
