OPERATION CLEAN COMPETITION 
 
 






Operation Clean Competition, is the RIIL program designed to enlighten Rhode Islanders to the truth about Appearance & Performance Enhancing Substances, hGh, dietary supplements, and energy drinks.  We accomplish this through FREE educational programs delivered to Rhode Island middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA branches and any other interested group.

We have contracted the Taylor Hooton Foundation to deliver our educational programs.  We have program options available at no cost thanks to funding through a grant provided by the Rhode Island Foundation.  See our two available programs below:
