Local Allstate Agents Sponsor Weekend Event In Memory of Colleague’s Son



 

What:               The free national teen defensive driving program B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe) will head to Charleston this weekend, visiting the North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts Center on Saturday and Sunday, June 27 - 28.

 

The 501(c)(3) charity was founded by multi-time Top Fuel drag racing champion Doug Herbert in honor of his two sons, Jon and James, who lost their lives in a tragic car crash in 2008. Herbert turned that personal tragedy into a lifesaving mission that has trained more than 45,000 teens across the country. 

                        The weekend’s sessions are being sponsored by local Charleston-area Allstate agents in tribute to the memory of Tripp Rabon, son of fellow agent Sandra Rabon, who lost his life in a car crash in 2015.

 

                        “Like Doug, I’ve experienced first-hand the tragedy of losing a child in a car crash,” said Ms. Rabon.  “Given the overwhelming number of teen deaths resulting from car crashes, it was imperative that we bring the B.R.A.K.E.S. program to Charleston.  Doug and his team are having a profound impact on road safety, which perfectly aligns with our mission at Allstate.”
