On June 1, 2011, Toni Donato Bolis, 28 years old, and her unborn son, were killed in a motor vehicle crash caused by a distracted driver using a cell phone. Toni was less than a mile a way from home and less than 36 hours away from giving birth to her second child, Ryan Jeffrey. On Pitman-Downer Road in Washington Township, NJ, a driver distracted by using his cell phone entered the lane of opposing traffic. After missing two other cars, he struck Toni's SUV head on, killing both Toni, and her unborn child.
The mission of our official NJ Non-Profit 501c3 organization is to educate drivers on the dangers of distracted driving by sharing Toni & RJ's story in schools and other public forums. The Foundation has also made a commitment to donate its time and funds to families in need who suffer from tragic losses that parallel Toni and RJ's. Since 2012, the foundation has awarded 42 scholarships of over $61,000!
