On March 27, 2008 Pennsylvania State Trooper Kenton Iwaniec, a Westmoreland County native, finished his shift at the Avondale Barracks in Chester County and began his drive home. Just two miles away from his station, an impaired driver crossed the centerline, hit Kenton’s vehicle head-on, and another beautiful life was added to the DUI victim’s death toll.
The mission of the Trooper Kenton Iwaniec Memorial Foundation is to honor DUI victims, raise awareness about the seriousness of impaired driving, and encourage the community to have a positive influence in the reduction of impaired driving. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we provide Preliminary Breath Test Devices (PBTs) to the Pennsylvania State Police and other law enforcement agencies throughout the Commonwealth.
Each year the foundation sponsors a 5K/10K Race at Saint Vincent College in April and a Sporting Clay Event at Nemacolin Woodlands Shooting Academy in September. All profits go to the purchase of PBTs for state and local law enforcement officers.
Join us at Saint Vincent College for the tenth annual TakeOff Race on Saturday, April 13, 2019. It is a day filled with educational activities for all ages. Even if you aren't a runner, come and spend the morning with us!
Trooper Iwaniec loved hunting and the outdoors. The Foundation will hold its eighth annual sporting clay event on September 21, 2019 at the Shooting Academy at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Participants of all skill levels are welcome.
