In recognition of our work to help combat the No. 1 killer of teens – car crashes – OSU Medical Center has been selected as one of five organizations to participate in the Parents Are the Key Contest for a chance to receive a $10,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation. But, we need your help!
From now through January 1, 2010, please vote once a day for OSU Medical Center at the following Web site: http://ParentsAretheKeyContest.com. The group with the most votes by New Year Day’s will receive a $10,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation, to further support teen safe driving efforts.
Each year, more than 4,000 teens – an average of 11 a day – are killed in car crashes. Most teen-involved crashes are preventable, caused by driver inexperience and distractions. Created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in partnership with The Allstate Foundation, the “Parents Are the Key” campaign encourages parents to take an active role in keeping teens safe behind the wheel.
Whether you’re a parent of a teen driver or not, you can help save teen lives and make the roads safer by casting your vote today at http://ParentsAretheKeyContest.com. With your support, we can continue our work to prevent teen car crashes.
Thanks for all your support and remember to vote daily!
