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.
Along with our 19 event sponsors we want to give a shout out to the over 2-dozen local companies who have donated award prizes for individuals and teams who raise the most funds or have the largest team. All the prizes are valued at just over $5,000. We have 3 hotel stays including 2 nights at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on Hawaii and Kaanapali Beach Hotel on Maui as well as 30,000 Hawaiian Air miles. We have several gift cards from restaurants and retail merchants including California Pizza Kitchen, Dukes Hula Grill, Wolfgang Steak House and Tori Richard. We have received watches, sun glasses, jewerly and aloha wear. And there are lots of prizes for the random drawings that are announced after the walk. Make sure you pick up your random drawing ticket at check in – which also is your claim ticket for your SWAG Bag - a backpack chock full of coupons, gift cards and small gift items. Mahalo also to Starbucks and Hawaiian Telcom for the early am coffee, Armstrong Produce for the post walk bananas and Cookie Corner for their delicious cookies.

FYI -another powerful way to raise funds for yourself or your team is to click on the Facebook link (if you use Facebook!) on your fundraising page. It makes it very easy for your friends to click onto your Walk Like MADD page and make a quick donation to support your efforts – AND help us do our important work.
The walk is 10 days away and we are excited to see you. Please reach out to your team captain or the Walk Like MADD contacts listed on the website if you have any questions. We will send another email the week of the event to let you know about the timing for the morning and where to go to check in.
See you soon!
