About Walk Like MADD
Walk Like MADD is MADD's signature fundraising event to help us raise both awareness and funds to eliminate drunk driving. Last year, tens of thousands of people in over 80 cities across the nation participated, and together, we raised more than 3 million dollars to provide our programs and services at no cost. With every step taken and each dollar raised, walkers are supporting MADD's lifesaving mission to keep our families and communities safe.
