It is time to end distracted driving!  The purpose of Mara’s Ride is just that.  We are looking for a maximum of 300 car/vans to drive in honor of Maria’s Message from Dublin Coffman High School to The Schottenstein Center on Sunday, September 16, 2018.  We are also looking for an UNLIMITED NUMBER OF VIRTUAL DRIVERS AND TEAMS TO PARTICIPATE.  Join Maria's Ride!

Proceeds will be used to create the first, FREE, Distracted Driving Prevention School complete with instructor and simulator machines to guide the participants through the Distracted Driving Prevention Course.  The Foundation has a location ready to go in Dublin, Ohio and, utilizing the funding provided by the Maria’s Ride Fundraiser, will operate this first of a kind school. It is the Foundation’s intention to create these schools across the United States.  We project each Distracted Driving Prevention School will instruct a minimum of 2,500 participants annually.

At your work place and through your usual channel of donating, please designate Maria Tiberi Foundation as your United Way organization.  The funds you designate will be used to support our mission of eliminating distracted driving.
