A special event was held Saturday morning to honor the lives of those lost in traffic accidents.

Hundreds participated in the Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 Run/Walk To Remember at Skutt High School. Many wore t-shirts or held posters as they went around the track, honoring the loved ones they’ve lost.

Executive Director Tom Everson said they hope to unify grieving families and bring awareness to others. “Every day we get behind the wheel of our car, we make life and death decisions. If we choose to observe the speed limit, stop at stop signs, put our cell phones aside, not follow too close, there's a hundred different behaviors and more that we need to pay attention to in order to keep ourselves and others safe around the roadways."

He said there was a great turnout at the event.
