THE FOUNDATION

Kyle W. Kiihnl Memorial Foundation

Kyle Kiihnl, only 17 years old, was struck by a young driver who due to fatigue, fell asleep at the wheel.  We have since made it our mission to save other lives by educating young and seasoned drivers on the dangers of driving fatigued and the importance of 8 to 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep.


The Foundation's efforts to educate drivers on drowsy driving has been successful. In our  local area, Shelby county, TN is showing an 18% reduction in drowsy driving fatalities. Visit our website for more information www.kylekiihnlfoundation.org.
