International 1in3 Day

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) – On August 1st, 2011 in Chattanooga, TN, 1In3 was started after Kevin Daniel "Sunshine" Yates, was killed by a drunk driver. The current statistic is, "one in three of us will be impacted by drinking and driving". This is a reality to many who have suffered loss due to this 100% preventable crime. Unfortunately this statistic changed in October of 2014 to 2 in 3 people.

This non-profit organization aptly named, 1In3, brings awareness to how many of us are "one in three impacted by drunk driving". If you are a parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, or friend of a victim, or the impaired driver and their family or friend, you are 1In3.

1In3 wants to make a worldwide statement and is inviting all who are 1In3, and have been impacted by driving intoxicated, to participate in the Annual International 1In3 Day, on August 1st. The group will be having a Balloon release ceremony, which will be at 1:00 pm in each time zone around the world. You can help to raise awareness by hosting an event in your hometown, no matter what time zone or country you are in.
