Walk Like MADD, the signature walk of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, is a fun, community-driven 5K event that raises funds and saves lives.
Every step taken and every dollar raised supports MADD’s initiatives in Connecticut including the Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving which calls for ignition interlocks for all drunk drivers; sobriety checkpoints and/or saturation patrols; community support; and the development and exploration of advanced technologies that will one day make a vehicle inoperable by a drunk driver.
The walk takes place on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at Branford Town Hall, 1019 Main Street. Registration begins at 8:30 am and the walk begins at 10:00 am.
Drunk driving is the nation’s most frequently committed violent crime. In 2011, 92 people were killed in Connecticut in drunk driving crashes. Nationally, MADD served over 50,000 victims/survivors and money raised through the Walk Like MADD helps to provide victim support services at no cost to the victim/survivors.
