Another Successful Ironman

On Saturday August 12, 2017 the Connor Johnson Foundation held its Annual Ironman Tournament.  More than 60 hockey players participated in the challenging tournament and at the same time learned about the devastating consequences of distracted driving.  Athletes were given opportunities to use texting and DUI simulators between tournament rounds.  Players as well as parents and tournament fans attended a distracted driving presentation and signed a crash car and safe driver’s pledge.  The response from parents, coaches, and players to the information was encouraging and will certainly have an impact on student drivers.

Thank You Sponsors

 Student Activity Includes Distracted Driving

Students at Franklin Regional High School enjoyed an evening of activities on a Saturday night that included volleyball, karaoke singing, board games, student rock bands, ping pong and other fun stuff.  Included in the evening was an opportunity to use the texting and driving simulators provided by the Connor Johnson Memorial Foundation.  The students showed great interest in the simulators and many acknowledged the impossibility of driving safely while trying to text.  Combining this educational activity with all the other activities was a great way to spark the conversation about distracted driving.  Great idea and great job to Franklin Regional!
