Due to declining participation and the amount of work and effort necessary,  we feel it is time to discontinue having annual Memory Walks.

It Won’t Happen To Me would not be a successful organization without the willingness of families to share their loss. The attendees that attend our programs  state that the real life stories we share are very impactful and set us apart from other programs.  The Memory Walks have been our way of giving back to the families.  Due to the rapid growth of the organization, we find it difficult to continue the Walks.  We will always remember the young sons and daughters lives that were shared with us, knowing  that they have saved countless lives. 

If you have lost a teen in a teen driven car crash, and would like to have your son or daughter represented at our book, please let us know.  It is our goal to help families to keep the memories of their teen alive and to give purpose behind their loss by educating teens through the loss of others, and in doing so preventing other families from having to experience the loss of a teen through car crashes.

It Won’t Happen To Me (IWHTM) and Traffic Violators Impact Program (TVIP) are dedicated to reducing the Number One cause of teen deaths – Car Crashes – through education and awareness.  Our educational initiatives help young drivers become safe and more responsible drivers.  We do this by sharing the stories of teens that have lost their lives in car crashes.  We discuss the choices that were made that led to their death, as well as how their death could have been prevented.  The organization also strives to make parents aware of the importance of proper training and monitoring of their teen.
