WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER?

MADD SOUTHWEST FLORIDA HAS THE ANSWER

 

Mothers Against Drunk Driving of Southwest Florida announces a new “What’s Your Number?” campaign related to it’s signature fundraiser, Walk Like MADD & 5K, on September 29, 2018 presented by Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice and Purtz P.A.

The “What’s Your Number?” campaign centers around a custom race bib for its USA Track & Field certified 5K which ends on the jetBlue Park MLB field at home plate.  The race bibs are courtesy of Domino’s Pizza in South Fort Myers and Kari Kardio in Fort Myers.  The local businesses got involved with MADD Southwest Florida because they understand that safe roads and a reduction in drunk driving directly impacts our local economy.

“We are super excited that our runners will have custom bibs.  Our 5K Chair, Tom Marquardt, a local entrepreneur and business owner as well as an avid runner, designed the bibs”, states Lori Burke, MADD SWFL Director.

Runners’ race bib numbers will be used to not only time their run for the coveted place medals; they will also be used to win one of four prizes courtesy of Fleet Feet of Fort Myers.  The prizes are two Garmin watches and two pairs of Brooks running shoes.
