The Art of Driving: Surviving the 5 5K

from Robin Thompson, Founder & CEO of The ART of Driving: 

I want to invite you to help keep our children safe on our roads! 
We are a 501c3 dedicated to keeping our children safe on our roads. 
Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for all children over the age of five...we are working hard to change that.

Our event on Oct 3 at Great Waves Water Park is a fun family event. Dogs and strollers are welcome. There will be face painting,great silent auction, terrific music, and lots more. Children's National Medical Center will be there with concussion and traumatic brain injury prevention information. Lucy Activewear Totes as our race bags!  Free zpizza's for everyone!

We provide educational programs to parents, teens, community organizations and younger children regarding traffic safety. Our foundation provided all the state mandated training for teens and parents at TC Williams HS last year. We are a recipient of the Governor's Youth Traffic Safety Award for the state of VA. We have been featured on the Today Show, and local media.

I started the program in memory of my daughter,Ashley, who I lost in a vehicle crash in 2003.  I have been a school nurse for ACPS for 24 years. 

I hope you will join us to raise awareness for youth traffic safety! Please contact me with any question!

With appreciation,
