You can make a difference in your
school and community.
On March 12th
2003, 20 year old Casey Goodwin was struck head on by an 18
year old drunk driver and died the following day on
March 13, 2003. Casey Goodwin dedicated her young life to
prevention programs, including those dealing directly with
alcohol-related issues. Casey was actively involved in
Friday Night Live and the California Youth Council from the
time she was in elementary school until her tragic death.
Moved by the loss of Casey, former classmates and CYC
members wanted to take action--they wanted to address
drinking and driving and underage drinking. This was the
catalyst for Casey's Pledge.
Pledge encourages youth to live a healthy lifestyle by
committing their lives to staying alcohol free or never
drinking and driving, and never getting into a car with a
drinking driver. Casey's Pledge was designed to provide
young people with a toolkit of resources and project ideas
to implement the project in schools, and
communities at large. The Casey's Pledge Toolkit includes:
Seven Steps to Launch Casey's Pledge
Tools for Introducing and Sharing Casey's Pledge
Ideas Page- to promote Casey's Pledge
Sample Casey's Pledge Press Release
Casey's Pledge Registration and Agreement form
Casey's Pledge- star template that can be signed by
Casey's Pledge Order Form- order wristbands and
Casey Goodwin DVD
We hope that you find Casey's Pledge
Toolkit helpful in preparing you to successfully
coordinate Casey's Pledge in your school and community.
Thank you for making the commitment to share with others
Casey's story, and for taking an active role in
encouraging students, and adults, to take a stand
against alcohol and drug-related issues. With your
involvement, we can prevent other people from ever
experiencing the tragedies and heartbreak that comes
from alcohol and drug-related accidents. Together we can
continue Casey Goodwin's legacy……….
