Help Prevent another Tragedy

Our community suffered tragic losses as Matthew Cruz, Andrew Gonzales, and Ricardo Torres, tragically lost their lives in an automobile accident Halloween night.
From visiting the site where the accident occured and sorting through all of the emotions, the families of these boys want to do something to help prevent further loss to other families. They feel that if the guard rail in that location along Highway 35 would have been in place their boys might still be alive today.
This was an idea brought up by Gary Cruz, Matthew's father, that he did want any other families to go through what he and Lety are going through right now. He knows this is just one small strip of roadway but he believes every bit helps and it will give him comfort if it could save a life in the future. Upon hearng this idea Rudy and Barbi Torres, Shelley Gonzales and Jason Perez(Andrews brother) all want to be involved in bringing this together. 
The funds raised here will be to help coordinate with Cal-Trans, County of San Mateo and the local community to bring this change and extend the guard rail around this bend in the hwy.

We would like to support all of the families as they navigate the difficult journey of loss by helping raise funds for the guard rail extension. Please donate here to help make hwy 35 a little safer.
