TORONTO, Monday, June 13, 2017– Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is a non-profit organization seeking to prevent drink driving and support those affected by it. In attempts to increase funds raised to support MADD’s initiatives, an annual 5KM Walk/Run is held called Strides for Change. Alcohol Countermeasure Systems (ACS), MADD Canada’s reoccurring Presenting Sponsor, created a company-wide event to have ACS employees show their support for MADD Canada while raising funds for MADD’s victim services and public awareness campaigns on drink driving.
With tens of thousands of Canadians impacted by impaired driving and an approximate 65,000 impaired driving charges given yearly, Strides for Change looks for opportunities to resolve the issue of Drinking and Driving within our community.
Supporting Strides for Change leads to increased road safety and safer communities. Proceeds help MADD Canada run a variety of services including: victim services, public education, youth education, public awareness and public policy.
