because ONE is TOO many 5K

Drunk driving is the number ONE cause of deaths on US roadways. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports deaths cause by drunk drivers increased 14% in the 2019-2020 year.

This is a 100% preventable crime. We parents, that have lost a child at the hands of an impaired driver, CANNOT wait for our lawmakers to impose harsher penalties. We must band together educate and raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving.

Our hearts-the driving force for what we do

As I was writing a bit about each one, I realized I was saying the same thing over and over.  There isn't enough room or time to write all things about each one of these precious people taken from us at the hands of a drunk driver. Those of you who know them already know. Those of you who don't, will learn if you follow us.  Gracie, Sam, Kelsey, and Mason all had several things in common. They all had a strong faith. They all loved all people. Going above and beyond for others was a commonality. Gracie was a girly girl and liked all things pink and sparkly and being called ladybug by her "paw." Kelsey liked playing softball, crafts, and butterflies.  Sam was a sportsman on land, and sea. He loved fishing! Mason was passionate about sharing the love of Jesus and baseball.
