The Berry kids brought their campaign called One Life Is Enough to Ridge Point High School in Sienna Plantation.

They warned about the dangers of distracted driving and shared their experience.

"Really when you're relaying a message that you are passionate about and that you want people to know," said Peter Berry. "It's not a burden."
