The Keri Anne DeMott Foundation
Let's talk NOW so we don't have to talk LATER!
On October 10th, 2015 Keri Anne DeMott was killed by a multiple DUI offender while driving home. She was only 20 years old, and was dedicated to serving her community and sharing positivity and kindness wherever she went. She was studying Sociology at the University of Central Florida in the hopes of becoming a social worker and helping children and families in need.
The Keri Anne DeMott Foundation was started by the DeMott family in 2016 to honor Keri's memory and to share her story with the primary goal of one day ending drunk, impaired, and distracted driving. As the foundation has grown the DeMott's have realized that every decision we make in life matters, not just the ones we make while behind the wheel. Whether it's at school, work, home, church, or anywhere else in between, we all face decisions on a daily basis that will shape who we are and effect every single person we come into contact with.
Today Keri's life and legacy is shared with students, law enforcement, first responders, and people of all ages as a reminder of how powerful and important our decisions are. We all have the ability to be a positive influence in our communities, and together we can create a better world just like Keri had imagined doing herself.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the foundation and the DeMott family keep Keri's passion of helping others alive by giving back to local community groups and national organizations that inspire, motivate, and help others.
Since you can’t come to us, we are coming to you! Join us this year for a very special VIRTUAL 5K to Launch Awareness!
Despite the setbacks and obstacles we have all faced this year due to COVID-19, we have an opportunity to be active and involved with our communities in new and exciting ways. We will not let this pandemic stop us from accomplishing our goals!
This year’s 5K is special to us because it takes place on October 10th, which will mark 5 years since we lost Keri Anne in a drunk driving crash. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate her life and legacy than with a virtual gathering of all of our friends, families, and supporters from across the country.
This year you can get involved in our annual 5K and run (or walk) to show your support wherever you are! Get your friends and families involved and sign up to be a part of our mission to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk, impaired, and distracted driving! We will go live on social media the day of the 5K, where you can walk “with us,” or you can share your photos and videos throughout the day to show your support- the options are endless! Make sure you sign up below and get involved before you become affected! Click here to register!
