Zero Fatalities Tour 2017


My passion is helping people and empowering lives. My name is John Westhaver . I am a Professional Motivational Speaker, educating young people about road safety through sharing my own tragic car crash experience.

This Fall, I will again be embarking on an Atlantic speaking tour, called The Zero Fatalities Tour. I will be bringing my speaking engagements to schools that otherwise may not be able to afford it and saving lives all along the way with my message. I am seeking sponsors to be my partners to making this happen.

I was involved in a fatal vehicle crash when I was 18. This crash not only left me with life threatening burns to 75% of my body, but it took the lives of three of my close friends, one of which was my best friend. I has been through one’s worst nightmare and I have made a miraculous recovery.

When I speak to groups, I talk about choices, the consequences of making poor choices and the power in making good choices. I share with the audience the impact of the choices my friends and I made on that fatal night. I also talk about the choices that I made afterwards, that had me make the miraculous recovery I have, turning this tragedy into a triumph.

Tour Objective:

I have been a successful Professional Motivational Speaker since 2002 . I have traveled across North America motivating and inspiring audiences of all ages.

The Zero Fatalities Tour is back again for my Fall 2017 Atlantic speaking tour. The primary objective of this tour is to educate and initiate better choices in order to end all Fatal Vehicle Collisions in Canada.

Tour Promise:

Not Just Any Talk - Real Life - Impactful - Thought Provoking

I engage students to switch places with me, to think about their options. I give them something powerful, to remind themselves to be safer drivers, and thoughtful passengers.

Tour Details:

Atlantic Canada:

October 29, 2017 through November 17, 2017

How Much Money Is Needed:

The more we can raise together, the more schools I can speak at, and the more impact I can make in terms of saving lives.

The goal is to raise $3,000 in order for me to be able to offer the presentation to schools that normally wouldn't have the financial means to have me. Presentation Fees during the tour for a school is $500, this is a special rate subsidized by this campaign. The more we can achieve together, the more lives we can save together across Canada.

What do the funds go towards?

Travel expenses are the biggest expense. Flights, car rental, fuel, lodging, and meals are in this category. Other costs are the presentation discounts that I can offer schools, based on what we raise together in this campaign.
