As a donor, past board member, and an insurance agent, I can tell you Tom Everson and the Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 organization does an awesome job in helping spread the word of encouraging safe driving behaviors. His outreach to communities, neighborhoods, and schools everywhere is a never ending job and he needs everyone's help in spreading the word of changing driving behaviors. I have known Tom for well over 10 years and I continue to support his good cause in many ways. I use information from the KKAD25 website when I meet with new teen drivers to talk about the responsibility of being a safe driver. I encourage all to check out the website and apply what you learn, and please consider supporting this great organization. Keep up the good work Tom!

Tom Everson and Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 truly do wonderful things for our community. Whether it's organizing events to raise awareness and promote an active lifestyle or saving lives through clever campaign slogans and signage products, KKAD25 is a feather in the cap of Omaha's non-profit scene.

Keep up the good work!

Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 has been a great asset in the community. Tom recently collaborated with the Southwest YMCA and Cody Elementary to teach children to walk to school safely on National Walk to School Day.

It's great to see Keep Kids Alive, Drive 25 in the community keeping kids and families safe.

Our organization has worked with Tom Everson and the Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 program for nearly six years. Tom has always been a great supporter of our program and us of his. KKAD25 utilizes funds to talk about safe driving not only in Nebraska, but across the entire U.S. We have donated material and funding to both his Live Forward and Run to Remember 5K and witnessed a great impact from both programs in the community.

I met Tom thru my job at a collision center and also being on my neighborhoods hoa board. My neighborhood's goal has been to reduce speeds of vehicles down the streets in which our kids play; our company is trying to reduce needless accidents because of speeding. We use signage along the roads and we go door-to-door handing out literature and encouraging resident participation in the program. I would also like to thank Tom Everson and KKAD25 for their updates and assistance whenever needed. I encourage other companies to get involved to protect our little people. Tom's passion is amazing!

Amazing is probably the best way to say how our experience has been with KKAD25. Tom and his staff helped to get a lawn sign campaign initiated in our community. It has gone over very well and we have received so many compliments from our residents. Furthermore it has really helped make motorists more people aware of their speed and pay closer attention to their surroundings. This campaign will ultimately help to save lives and make our roads safer for all. Looking forward to continuing our work with KKAD25 in the future. Cant wait for the next community outreach project.

Keep Kids Alive....Where do I start? What a incredibly hard job they are working, protecting our children. I lost my beautiful daughter Erika Joy in 2008 in an automobile accident. Tom Everson found me through my non-profit for Erika and I joined on the bandwagon to promote driving safety. The goal is obvious and the need is great. We must try and save our children. Tom's non-profit works tirelessly to save our children and remember the ones we have lost. What an inspirational and amazing group of people. If you find you need somewhere to pay it forward....Your telling yourself it's time to give back....then give to Keep Kids Alive.....It's the most important thing you will ever do....help protect and save our beautiful children. Thank you and have a wonderful life!!!

Helping kids stay alive and helping people to become more aware of the dangers our children and teens encounter every day. This is a heartfelt atta boy for an organization that has helped our family after the devastating loss of our beautiful daughter. Keep up the beautiful and important work you endeavor to do each and every day.

I have supported the mission of Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 since its inception in 1998. Throughout the past 17 years I have donated to support both their proactive work with communities to engage drivers in practicing behaviors that keep everyone safe on and around roadways as well as their work through Live Forward! in support of families who's loved ones have died in a traffic incident. KKAD25's steadfast commitment to staying focused on their core mission has been, and continues to be, reason enough to continue my donations. I invite you to join me in adding your support to mine as a donor.

Through their many outreach events in NE and beyond, Tom Everson & the Keep Kids Alive 25 team have made a positive footprint in the lives of thousands of families across the nation. Ranging from the organization's massive outreach in community education on traffic safety, to commemorative events such as the annual Live Forward Run, KKAD 25 is truly going the extra mile to honor the lives of children lost in traffic accidents, while impacting public perception & awareness on what safe driving means. Now THIS is an organization committed to changing the statistics, one safe driver at a time. Most recently, the KKAD 25 team completed an ascent of Pike's Peak in support of their mission, demonstrating once again, that there are no limits to the power of saving lives. I had the honor of attending a KKAD 25 Live Forward race last Spring, and simply put, am moved by the compassion of this organization to honor each and every child lost, while stopping at nothing to empower each of us to Drive Safely. Great work KKAD25!!!
