On Saturday, November 16th at Oak Point Elementary in Eden Prarie, Elementary school-age kids will learn about distracted driving through intelligently designed age-appropriate video clips, games, and stories developed by Eden Prairie High School-based Distraction-free Life Club. The coaching session will imbed in young kids, the ability to watch for distractions as they ride, not only in the car they are in but also in cars passing by them. The ultimate goal of the session is to build a solid foundation for a future distraction-free driver. Each kid will take home an esteem-building-artifact that will help them spread the word about distraction-free driving.

Thank you to all those who joined us for the 12th Annual Raksha 5k Run/Walk!
