Larissa Redmond, Gibbs' fiancé, decided to set up C.L.I.F in remembrance of him. She was determined to help raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving, whether it be texting, eating, talking on the phone, putting on makeup or anything else in the long line of not-worth-it activities.
Gibbs' fraternity brothers were featured in the show as a tribute to him.
Morgan Hanna, a student at Rhodes College, and Essence Owens, C.L.I.F.'s project coordinator, helped make the path for Distracted Runway 1.0 possible. And while each individual had a personal take on the events meaning, the shared thoughts were making sure Gibbs's memory lived on and spreading the word the word that driving distracted is just not worth it.
Food was served courtesy of Davielle Boyce, owner of Davielle's Dee-Licious Entrees, and a silent auction featured the works of various artists around the city and products donated by the Memphis Grizzlies.
"I am humbled by the knowledge and experience I've gained and look forward to continuing to expose the dangers of distracted driving."
