We walk to end drunk driving.

Will you take up the fight by joining us at Walk Like MADD?

WALK LIKE MADD is your chance to do something about drunk driving in our community. This year, thousands of people in over 60 cities around the nation will participate in 5k events to eliminate drunk driving from our roadways.

You can help MADD eliminate drunk driving by signing up for a Walk Like MADD event near you as a walker, team captain, or volunteer. You can even be involved without attending the event by signing up as a virtual walker or making a donation to another walker or team.

 A message from House Republican Leader and Honorary Chairwoman of the Fairfield County Walk Like MADD Representative Themis Klarides:

  "Mothers Against Drunk Driving is dedicated to saving lives and getting dangerous motorists off our roads and making our streets safer. This annual event highlights the fact that we need to support all the good work that MADD does to ensure public safety and health. MADD has made a huge difference in all our lives, but we all know the work is not done, it is never done." 

 

 

 

 


Why We Walk

 
Christopher Hubinger

On December 2, 2007, Christopher Hubinger, 22, went out with three friends. They thought they did everything right. Since they would be drinking, they made sure to have a Designated Driver. However, the Designated Driver later decided to have a few drinks. On the way home, the driver was speeding and lost control of the car, which ran off the road, hit a tree and then a telephone pole. The two boys in the back seat got out of the car while the driver and Chris were left in the front. A nurse passing by noticed the glass on the road and saw the car, which was starting to catch on fire. She pulled the driver out of the car, and yelled, “Is there anyone else in the car?” The other boys said no, and moments later the car was engulfed in flames. Chris never made it out of the car.

Chris was always there for everyone in his life. He was generous to his sisters, his parents, his nephews, his friends and even to strangers. He was honest and hard working, and had a great sense of humor. He never spoke ill of others and could diffuse a person’s anger with just a few words.

Our hearts ache every day for Chris, but we know he would want us to make something good of this. So we decided to share this painful and personal story with you to help others from making the same tragic mistake of drinking and driving.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Connecticut is honored to dedicate the 2017 Fairfield County Walk Like MADD to Christopher Hubinger and asks that you join the Hubinger family in creating a future of No More Victims.
