"One in three of us are impacted by drunk driving."


Annually on August 1st is an event to bring worldwide awareness to everyone of how many people are impacted by DRUNK, DRUGGED, or BUZZED DRIVING.   STAND UP, BE COUNTED!

  • 2 out of 3 people will be impact in their lifetime!

  • Every 2 minutes someone is injured in a drunk driving crash!

  • Every 51 minutes someone is killed due to a drunk driving crash!


Join us on August 1st to make a WORLDWIDE IMPACT!

In 2012, we decided to invite the world to bring drunk driving awareness with us. August 1st is the anniversary date of Kevin Yates death. Instead of that day being a sad day for Kevin's family and friends on that first anniversary we posted a Facebook Event and had 127 cities in 34 states, and 21 locations in 15 other countries to participate in our 1st Annual International 1N3 Day. Each documented location gathered at same designated time in their time zone around the world to honor EVERYONE who survived and remember those who died due to a drunk driving crash.


SUNDAY, August 1, 2021, will be our 10th Annual event. Each location whether public or private, will choose your event time. We are asking each location to have a moment of silence or prayer, followed by a ceremony of your choice. (balloon or lantern release, candle lighting, releasing flowers on the ocean, etc. you can be creative). Afterwards we ask that you share your photos with 1N3 on social media on our pages and tag #1N3day2021. We hope you will host a location and help 1N3 spread awareness. 

For more information about our 2021 event email 1n3day@iam1n3.org or call our office number,             423-402-0163.

​This year we have decided to keep all host locations to a simple gathering and ceremony.  Invite your family and friends at your own awareness location.

If you are in or close to the Chattanooga area feel free to join us at 6849 Prestige Lane, Hixson, TN 37343. There will be a special service at 11AM at Purpose Church.  CLICK HERE  for the Facebook event page link.
