The Next Step Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation that presents its story and educates from the offenders point of view about the life-altering effects of drinking and driving to schools, corporations and community groups. It helps communities learn about the impacts and consequences surrounding the decision to drink and drive and the all-to-often devastating effects, which often extend to many more individuals than the driver who has made the bad decision to drive drunk.
The Next Step Foundation also works hard to empower parents and caregivers of individuals with traumatic injuries and special needs to improve their health by participating in programs, like Run with Team Brandon, geared toward exercise, nutrition and self-love.
Everyone is welcome to join and support Team Brandon at any one of the many events it participates in and the Vow to Drive Sober Run, both of which help bring awareness to the fight against drinking and driving.
All donations help support The Next Step Foundations charter including helping special needs families obtain running chairs so that they too can participate with Team Brandon, participate in other activities and help spread the VOW TO DRIVE SOBER message.
All it takes is one message to a listening ear to save a life. Help The Next Step Foundation and make sure the message goes out to those who need it before a tragedy strikes.
