This month, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) kicks off its 2014 Walk Like MADD season with 50 5K walks planned for the spring and fall. Walk Like MADD is MADD’s biggest event for honoring those killed or injured in drunk driving crashes and looking forward to a future without drunk driving and underage drinking.
The event also raises money for MADD affiliates and chapters across the country. Communities across the nation use the funds to help stop drunk driving, support victims and families of drunk driving, and prevent underage drinking. In 2013, MADD hosted 73 Walk Like MADD events and raised over $2.7 million.
In 2014, MADD aims to add more walks to the 50 already scheduled and to raise more funds than last year so that local communities can use its programs and services at no cost.
