"Drive 25 Campaign" to Keep Kids Alive

The "Drive 25 Campaign" coincides with the 13th birthday of Keep Kids Alive Drive 25.

Over the past 13 years we have been privileged to work with over 1,300 communities representing 49 states in creating safer neighborhood streets for the benefit of all. Along the way, we have connected with many families who have adopted our 
mission in the wake of the death of a loved one due to a traffic incident. It is always a special privilege to partner with these families to bring greater good into the world in memory of their loved one. Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 is the only non-profit in the country that targets neighborhood traffic safety, as well as a host of other traffic safety concerns, along with support of families of victims of motor vehicle incidents.

With our
mission in mind, we are working to build a funding base that will allow us to expand the reach and scope of our work in the years ahead. In doing so, we are presenting 3 opportunities for individuals to support our mission. These include:

  • Becoming a monthly donor for $10.00 or more (each month) through the Network for Good Giving System. Our page can be found at KKAD25 Network for Good.  An option is to do this through a bank draft which can be set up at most banks to be sent out each month.
  • Becoming a donor to support our annual "Run to Remember" team as part of the Pike's Peak Ascent Trail Race. This fundraiser supports the families of loved ones who have died in traffic incidents. This past August 20th was our 5th "Run to Remember." We worked to raise $7,800 - $1.00 for each foot of elevation change from the beginning of the race at 6,300 ft. altitude to the summit of Pike's Peak at 14, 115 ft. This year we ran to remember 51 loved ones representing 49 families from across the country. For more information and to make a donations, please visit "Run to Remember" We are now preparing for the 6th "Run to Remember" August 18, 2012
  • If you are in position to do so, consider making a donation of $1,000.00 or more towards our mission. Our goal is at least 25 donors at this level in the year ahead. We welcome corporate donors/partners as well.
Donations can be made at anytime of year through our PayPal account at KKAD25 Donate. Checks can be sent to:
