Keep Kids Alive Drive 25
February 3, 2011

I learned about Keep Kids Alive - Drive 25 a few years ago from a friend of mine in our home town of Forked River, New Jersey. The concept that Tom has put forth sold me on the organization immediately. There's only so much that the police and public saftey personnel can do to make sure our children and our future is protected, but by having the reminders of driving safely when children are around spread around town (via Lawn signs, garbage can stickers, etc.) reinforces the goal in "real time" and redundantly. Every time we have had signs available for folks in town, they've gone faster than hotcakes. I can't tell you how many times complete strangers have stopped me in front of my house to ask where I got my lawn sign. I'd like to see more events around Monmouth and Ocean Counties in New Jersey like the 5K I participated in in Colts Neck two years ago. KKAD25 is an organization that not only strives to keep our children safe, but also strengthens the feeling of "Community" within your town at the same time.

The Great!
