WALK like MADD®, is MADD's signature walk event. In 2011, in almost 40 cities around the nation, thousands of people will participate in 5K walks to celebrate creating a brighter future without drunk driving and underage drinking.
Why Does MADD Do a Walk? Because far too much work needs to be done to eliminate drunk driving, prevent underage drinking and serve victims. Did you know? • Last year, 10,839 people died in drunk-driving crashes - one every 50 minutes. • Every minute, one person is injured from an alcohol-related crash. • One in three people will be involved in an alcohol-related crash in their lifetime. • MADD serves a victim or survivor of drunk driving every 9 minutes. • Teen alcohol use kills about 6000 people each year, more than all illegal drugs combined. • Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens, and one out of three of those is alcohol related. Every step taken will help raise funds and awareness for MADD's programs and services that will serve to keep our children and communities safe.
