On October 16, 2012, Tyler Sands was killed by a repeat drunk driver. It was his 22nd birthday. The phone call that we received from the South Carolina coroner’s office forever changed our family and friends lives. It is a phone call that every parent prays they will never receive. No one should ever have to bury their child and especially if it is the result of something that is 100% preventable.
The Sands family invites you to join us on September 15th at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the Mercedes-Benz Stadium 5k/ walk Like MADD event. This event is to honor those that have lost their lives or been injured by a drunk driver and to raise awareness of the dangers of under age drinking. Proceeds go to help keep our Georgia roads safe, supporting victims and educating the community to always have a plan before you go out and to never drink and drive.
Please join us to run/walk for Team Tyler E. Sands and celebrate his life, beautiful smile, sense of humor and not allow his death to be in vain.
If you can’t join us, you can be a virtual walker or make a donation to the team. Our goal this year is to raise 5,000.
Thank you for all your love and support and we hope to see you on September 15th at Mercedes-Benz Stadium
