BRINGS THE INLAND EMPIRE COMMUNITY TOGETHER TO REMEMBER LOVED ONES, INSPIRE CHANGE AND COMMIT TO END DRUNK DRIVING
May 4, 2019
According to the latest statistics, 2,312 alcohol involved collisions happened in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties combined in 2017.
The Inland Empire Region of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) will host its signature non-competitive 5K fundraising event Walk Like MADD in the city of Rialto on Saturday, May 4th.
Registration starts at 6am at Charlotte N. Werner Elementary. Funds go directly to MADD’s lifesaving mission here in Southern California and enables them to provide necessary community services to those affected by drunk driving. The MADD Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving calls for high-visibility law enforcement, ignition interlocks or “in-car breathalyzers” for all convicted drunk drivers, and support for the development of advanced technology.
“We walk to finish the job that was started by a grieving mother in 1980. Now in our 39th year, MADD has saved more than 370,000 lives and has served more than 840,000 victims,” said Patricia Rillera, Executive Director, MADD California. “Walk Like MADD will raise mission-critical funds to help save lives in our hometown.”
Walk like MADD has three main 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.
The 5k Run begins at 7am, ceremony at 7:30am, and the 5k Walk begins at 8am. Charlotte N. Werner Elementary is located at 1050 W. Rialto Ave. in Rialto.
