Review for Keep Kids Alive Drive 25, Omaha, NE, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

My wife and I became aware of KKAD25 after our daughter Shannon was killed in an automobile/bicycle accident in front of our house in June 2001. While speed was not considered a factor in the accident, driver inattention was surely a cause. It was an inexperienced 7 year old bike rider (fresh off of training wheels) and an inexperienced 17 year old car driver, unaware of his surroundings as he drove through the neighborhood. We met Tom Everson at our church and his desire to help prevent this kind of tragedy from happening again was evident. He really wanted to help. Through our conversations with Tom over the next year and a half, we were convinced this was a worthwhile organization that we should be involved. We joined the original Board of Directors when KKAD25 became a non-profit.

Role:  Board Member & We have shared Shannon's story on multiple occasions to help promote awareness for neighborhood driving safety as well as being involved in fund raising activities to support KKAD25.
