“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain”

-Lili Trujillo

Our Story

Lili Trujillo founded Street Racing Kills (SRK) in 2014 after her 16-year-old daughter Valentina was killed by a young man who was street racing and crashed while giving her a ride home. 

She knew then that her daughter’s death would not be in vain, and that she would do everything she could to prevent another parent from losing a child. Her life changed forever that day. With Valentina by her side in spirit, her mission was born; to save lives by mentoring and creating awareness among the youth.
