On October 10th, 2015 Keri Anne DeMott was killed by a multiple DUI offender while driving home. She was only 20 years old. 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 to honor Keri's memory and to share her story, with the goal to one day end drunk, impaired, and distracted driving. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the foundation will continue Keri's passion of helping others by giving back to local community groups and national organizations that inspire, motivate, and help others.
The foundation’s goal is to spread a message of education and awareness about the decisions we all make and how they affect others. By sharing Keri’s story with middle school, high school, and college students as well as community groups and local law enforcement agencies, we hope to create a positive change in the world and give back to the community in the same ways Keri had imagined doing herself.
On Saturday, September 7th, the DeMott family will be gathering in Van Saun Park in Paramus to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk, impaired, and distracted driving. There is no registration fees for this event, so come on out and bring the family for a day of fun at the park! We will have refreshments, food, games, and a special ceremonial walk. We can't wait to meet everyone and share the mission and message of The Keri Anne DeMott Foundation with you!
