The Garland Youth Council will host a family fun run to raise awareness about teens driving safely and responsibly. The Drive Alive Dash is schedule from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 6 at Firewheel Town Center, 245 Cedar Sage Drive. The theme for this awareness event is Life is a Highway, Drive it the Right Way.
The Drive Alive Dash will kick off with a two-mile family fun run/walk, which will start in the park area at Firewheel Town Center. Teens and their families are invited to participate in the fun run. Online registration is $15 for adults and $10 for students under the age of 18. The first 200 registrants will receive a free event T-shirt. On-site registration also will be available at the full price of $15 for all ages.
The first 200 people to finish the fun run will receive a free gift bag filled with special offers and discounts from Firewheel Town Center merchants, as well as other giveaways. After the run, join the Garland Youth Council and Teens in the Driver Seat teams from various Garland area high schools to learn more about safe driving for teens. Learn about the top five behaviors that put teen drivers and their passengers at a higher risk for being injured or killed in a car crash. Parents and teens also can take a pledge not to text and drive, and record a video message urging others to do the same. Activities also will include entertainment featuring musical performances by Garland area teens and the opportunity to vote for your favorite performer.
The Drive Alive Dash is a "rain or shine" event.
