Mission Statement


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.





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 the dangers of distracted driving so that no one has to endure the pain and loss that we are experiencing. 
 
Slow Down, Be Alert and Save a Life!
