A bond between drivers on the road; promising to drive distraction-free in order to protect each other and the community.


Raksha Bandhan is an Indian festival that commemorates a centuries-old tradition in which a sister ties a ceremonial band on her brother’s wrist and prays for his protection and safety. The brother reciprocates with a pledge to be there for her whenever she needs him. A simple band, therefore, binds brothers and sisters in an inseparable bond.

Much like this bond between brother and sister, let us commit to a bond of protection with other drivers who share the road with us. 

Since the inception of the Raksha Walk/5K Run in 2009, all Minnesota Governors proclaimed the day of Raksha Walk as the Distraction-Free Driving Awareness Day
in the State of Minnesota.

If you have questions about the event or problems with registration, please reach out to: contact@shreyadixit.org



Vijay Dixit, Board Chairman of the Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation discusses the dangers of distracted driving.
