WE WALK AND RUN TO END DRUNK & DRUGGED DRIVING

Since 2009, our community has seen at least 4,000 DUI arrests made each year, with 4,056 DUI arrests in 2016, according to the Kern County District Attorney's Office. That's more than 11 DUI arrests per day. 

Sadly, many impaired drivers weren't stopped in time, and instead caused major damage to innocent lives. Last year saw 45 DUI crashes in Kern County causing great bodily injuries, and 11 homicides while impaired. 

Bakersfield's WALK LIKE MADD & MADD DASH is your chance to do something about drunk and drugged driving in our community. For the fourth year, Kern County will come together on Sept. 23 to proclaim, "Drunk Driving Ends Here!"

You can help by signing up as a walker, runner (5K or 10K), team captain, or volunteer. Parents: The event also features a kid's "fun run," where each child of walk and race participants gets a free superhero cape. You can even get involved if you aren't able to attend by signing up as a "virtual walker," or by asking a donation toward a participant or team who has been affected.

All funds raised from this event stay in Kern County to help innocent victims of DUI crashes, help raise awareness of the DUI epidemic in our community, and helps fund MADD Kern County programs.
