On March 17, 2011, 8-year-old Owen Cole Brezitski was killed by a 17-year-old distracted driver while walking in a crosswalk with his family in front of Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, PA. He had just attended a band concert for his sisters and to celebrate the evening's event they were headed out to get Shamrock Shakes. Owen's Foundation
was born out of this tragedy.
The Owen's Foundation's mission it to promote pedestrian, driver, traffic and childhood safety and all aspects of community safety as well as raise awareness of the consequences of distracted driving practices.
