Distracted Driving Awareness month proceeds donated to Owen's Foundation

CBS 21

A $5,000 check went toward the effort to combat distracted driving Wednesday.

Capital Blue Cross presented the proceeds for April's Distracted Driving Awareness month to Owen's Foundation.

When he was only 8 years old, Owen Brezitski was hit and killed by a distracted driver back in 2011. His family has been raising awareness ever since.

To make a donation to the general Owen's Foundation Fund, go to their website or send a check to: Owen's Foundation, P.O. Box 6084, Harrisburg, PA 17112.

CBS 21 is also committed to stopping distracted driving through the Drive Safe Central Pennsylvania initiative.
