Join the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United FC, Atlanta Track Club and Mothers Against Drunk Driving - Georgia for the 2021 Mercedes-Benz Stadium 5K/Walk Like MADD and be a part of something special. This event offers something for the whole family, runners and walkers alike, including a 5K, Mile and Dash. All participants have the opportunity to finish on the field of Mercedes-Benz Stadium and 100% of the proceeds go to MADD Georgia.

This event is MADD's signature fundraising event to raise both awareness and funds to eliminate drunk driving. In 2019, tens of thousands of people in over 80 cities across the nation participated, and together, raised more than 3 million dollars to provide MADD 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.
