“Due to the ever-evolving the situation surrounding COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone our Annual 5K to Launch Awareness. We were notified earlier this week that all Brevard County Parks will be closed until April 30th, including Sandpoint Park where our event is being held. Though the 5K is originally scheduled for May 2nd, we feel that it is too short of a window to gauge whether or not we can successfully and safely host this event.
The health and safety of our families, our board members, our partners/sponsors, and our supporters are our number 1 priority. While we are disappointed in this outcome, we feel this is the best step in order to ensure our event will be the best and safest it can possibly be. At this time we will be closely monitoring the situation and will provide a rescheduled race day once we receive more information from our partners in Brevard County.
We will be pausing registration for this event on our website and all social media channels. If you have already registered for the 5K, we will have more information regarding refunds soon.
Please continue to check in with us on our social media channels and our website for the most up-to-date information.
As always, thank you all for your support. Be safe, stay healthy, take care of one another, and remember- we are all in this together. “

Our 4th Annual Dinner Banquet was an absolute blast! This year was truly the biggest night of the year for us, and we were honored to have a room packed full of our friends, family, consistent supporters, and many first-time attendees. We had over 20 men and women nominated for our law enforcement based Decisions Scholarship, a full silent auction, and amazing food provided by Pickles Catering. We also had some surprises throughout the evening including a special video message from our friend Officer Daniels, and we also got to surprise our friend and event host Trooper Steve Montiero with the #KeriAnneDeMottMatters Award. It was an amazing evening that set the tone for the upcoming year, and we are so excited for what's to come thanks to everyone that supports our family and our message. Check out the slideshow above (photos by the amazingly talented Sherri Claudio) to see all of the highlights of the night!
Mark your calendar for next year's 5th Annual Dinner Banquet on January 9th, 2021 (Keri's 26th Birthday)!
We would like to give a special thanks to to so many people! Thank you to Ken and Cynthia White, Maury and Crystal Zavallo, and all of our volunteers for making the night truly amazing! We also want to thank Pickles Catering for a 5-star menu and Diane Vaught for the always amazing starfish cupcakes! We also want to thank all of the companeis and individuals that contributed to our silent auction; your donations have helped raise funds that will allow us to travel farther and speak to more people than ever before. Thank you to everyone that came out and made the evening so so special!
