Red Frogs began in 1997 where Andy took 17 of his skateboarding buddies and a budget of $450 to the Gold Coast during schoolies week. Now in its 20th year Red Frogs reaches 1.4 million people annually through high schools, universities, sports, schoolies/leavers, leadership training, skate parks and music festivals. Red Frogs has had a lasting impact on a generation and will continue to safeguard the next generations in the years to come.
