As 2011 winds down I want to thank you for each and every action you have taken to help realize the mission of KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25®. Every time you observed the speed limit, stopped at a stop sign, buckled up, turned off and set your cell phone aside, and so many other actions, you contributed to the safety of others, along with yourself, each time you drove. I am grateful for every citizen who posted one of our KEEP KIDS ALIVE messages on a trashcan, via a yard sign, or on a car or window decal, as well as all who have donated financially to support the mission.

For over thirteen years KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® has led the way in communities of all sizes in addressing neighborhood traffic safety concerns. No other organization is designed to do what KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® does. To date, we have worked with and through over 400 law enforcement agencies, as well as hundreds of neighborhood and civic organizations, schools, public works and neighborhood services, and businesses in over 1,300 communities representing 49 states, 2 Canadian Provinces, the Bahamas, Australia, and India. Our mission and message resonate with traffic safety advocates and educators across the globe.

In the midst of a challenging economy, this past year we have supported new and expanding campaigns in 75 communities representing 21 states. Truly our message and mission are taking root and making a difference in communities large and small. We have managed to support these efforts on a budget of $84,000.00 for the 2010-11 fiscal year. With the support of our board of directors, we continue to squeeze every last drop out of funds available to make a difference on neighborhood streets (and beyond) from coast to coast.

Along the way we have met many families who have been directly affected by the death of a loved one due to a traffic incident. These families have become special partners with us in helping to create safer roadways to benefit everyone in their community – and sometimes beyond. We have been privileged to honor these loved ones each August for the past 5 years through our “Run to Remember” as part of the Pikes Peak Ascent Trail Race.

With our mission and partners in mind, I invite you to continue to help KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® to go the extra mile in 2012 through your tax-deductible donation at KKAD25 Donate. Checks can be sent to:
