The Garland Youth Council (GYC) will host a 5K fun run to raise awareness about teens driving safely and responsibly. The Drive Alive Dash is scheduled from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 22, in the Downtown Garland Square.
The 5K will begin and end in Downtown Garland. Teens and their families are invited to participate. Online registration is $15. Participants who register by April 1 are guaranteed a T-shirt. On-site registration also will be available at the price of $15 for all ages.
The first 200 people to finish the fun run will receive a finisher medal.
After the run, join the GYC and Teens in the Driver Seat 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.
