Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) will host its annual 5K fundraiser, Walk Like MADD/MADD Dash5k, on October 21st at Holmes Lake.
Despite a nearly 50 percent decline in drunk driving deaths since MADD was founded in 1980, almost 10,000 people are killed by drunk drivers and another 290,000 are injured in drunk driving crashes every year. In fact, two in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime. In 2017, 71 people were killed on Nebraska’s roads in impaired driving crashes.
But you can be part of the solution.
Funds raised through Walk Like MADD events support MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving® right here in the state of Nebraska. The event also helps us connect people to our life-saving mission ending drunk driving, fighting drugged driving, preventing underage drinking and supporting the victims of these crimes.
Walk Like MADD has three key components:
- Remember: We walk for those who no longer can and alongside those who are learning to walk again.
- Inspire: We walk empowered even when we feel powerless, as survivors when we have been victimized, and with purpose when we have lost our way.
- Commit: We walk with supporters who share our vision of no more drunk driving victims.
