This race is held in memory of Kyle W. Kiihnl, a Houston High School student who was killed when a drowsy driver fell asleep at the wheel AND in memory of all others who have been affected by a sleep related crash. Proceeds from the race will benefit Kyle's scholarship fund, research, and community awareness activities.
We thank you for your support in contributing to this endeavor to help raise awareness of the dangers of drowsy driving. AWARENESS SAVES LIVES!
