Walk Like MADD in 2014
By MADD | February 3, 2014| 3 Comments | Filed in: Drunk Driving

This month, we’re excited to kick off the 2014 Walk Like MADD season! Walk Like MADD is MADD’s signature event to celebrate a brighter future without drunk driving and underage drinking, as well as honor loved ones killed or injured in drunk driving crashes.

Last year there were 73 Walk events, which raised more than $2.7 million for MADD affiliates and chapters across the country.  All funds raised from each Walk stay in the community to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.

This year we hope to raise even more funds so that we can to continue to provide our programs and services at no cost to local communities.  But, we need your help!  Sign up to be a walker today.

There are already more than 50 Walks planned this spring and fall, and 40 of those are now open for registration.  Click here to find the Walk Like MADD event closest to you!

If you are unable to attend a Walk because of the date or location, you can still sign up as a virtual walker and raise money to eliminate drunk driving in your community. Whatever way you contribute, your support is greatly appreciated.

Don’t have a Walk near you?  More than 30 Walk Like MADD events put on each year across the country are run entirely by volunteers who want to make an impact in the fight against drunk driving in their community.  If you are interested in learning more about starting a Walk Like MADD event near you, contact wlmsupport@madd.org

We appreciate your support and hope to see you at a Walk Like MADD event this year!

Driving under the influence is a very poor choice. I personally believe it is probably one of the worst choices you could make. I wouldn't blame the generation, as much as I'd blame the people who raised "her".

Heartbroken. 6 people killed in LA by a wrong way alleged drunk driver. When Nick Adenhart lost his life I began to wonder why the anti-drunk driving message had lost its potency from the time when I was in high school then I realized that a large number of now-adults did not have the benefit of hearing this message the way my generation did. I will be walking in LA 10/2014 in an effort to contribute to re-raising awareness. The driver in this morning's crash was 21. Her generation needs strong words.
