The Tree of Life Ceremony is an annual event that honors those who have lost their lives in car crashes. The event is open and free to the public.
The tree will be illuminated with lights and Christmas bulbs:
- Red bulbs memorializing the victims of alcohol-related crashes;
- Blue bulbs memorializing law enforcement who've died on North Carolina roadways; and
- White lights commemorating the lives lost in all vehicle crashes.
The ceremony will be held:
Friday, Dec. 6, 2019
1 E. Edenton St.
Raleigh, N.C. 27601
The memorial event precedes the annual holiday Booze it & Lose It campaign which runs Dec. 16 through Jan. 5, 2020.
The ‘Tree of Life’ ceremony is funded by The Governor’s Highway Safety Program which supports a myriad of safe-driving initiatives like Click It or Ticket, Booze It & Lose It, BikeSafe NC, Watch For Me NC, Speed a Little. Lose a Lot, and North Carolina’s Vision Zero initiative, which is working to meet the goal of zero deaths on through community involvement and data-driven safety interventions.
