MADD Dash and Walk Route –
For the route map, click here. Please be advised: there will be officers that will assist in crossing Lake Woodlands and North Panther. You will cross diagonally coming and going. It is not possible to have officers at every neighborhood entrance, etc. So please stop at stop signs and yield for cars as you normally would. After North Panther you will be crossing over neighborhood entrances, so be cautious of turning cars.
Be sure and visit the Tribute Booth to collect a bell. We ring the bells to honor those affected by drunk driving. Leave a tribute and a commitment on the commitment collage, showing why we walk for MADD.
Victims / Survivors:
Please be sure to visit the Tribute Area to leave a photo of your loved one and to collect your memory bell. We also have “I Walk For" signs to carry during the walk, and special honor butterfly to hang.
We have plenty of space so be sure and bring out your team tent and decorate.
