Thank you to those who have supported Owen’s Foundation in the past and those that will in the future.  We invite you to be part of this year’s O4O Memorial Golf Tournament.  Because of past generosity, we have been able to continue with our mission to promote pedestrian, driver, traffic and childhood safety and raise more awareness about the dangers of distracted driving practices.  Owen’s Foundation has:

 

  • Awarded the first Owen Cole Brezitski Memorial Scholarship to a Bishop McDevitt High School graduate.
  • Awarded two $500 Grants to needy students attending Holy Name of Jesus School (the school Owen attended).
  • Purchased helmets and catching equipment for PHR Baseball Association (Owen’s baseball association).
  • Donated to South Central EMS; Interfaith Shelter for Homeless Families; Keystone Service Systems; and The Silence of Mary. 
  • Shared our story to thousands of students and adults at various school functions, conferences and events to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving.
  • Helped to coordinate the First Distracted Driving Challenge held at Adventure Sports in Hershey, PA this past fall and will be a sponsor the 2014 High School Safe Driving Competition this Spring.
  • Currently we are in the process of painting, furnishing and decorating a bedroom at the newest Silence of Mary Home in Harrisburg, PA.

 

 

Please consider being part of a Great Day and a Special Mission!

 

Thanks in advance,

    On March 17, 2011, 8-year-old Owen Cole Brezitski was killed by a 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 a Shamrock Shake.

 

Owen's Foundation was born out of this tragedy.

Thank you for your continued support!
 
 
We want to share with you our goals, our aspirations, our pains and our inspirations.  We want you to know why Owen was so dear and precious to us and the many others
who knew him.  He touched so many lives in his short time here on earth and his Legacy, his Spirit and his Story continue to touch thousands more.  Our goal and our passion is to bring awareness to distracted driving so that no one has to endure the pain and loss that we are experiencing.
