Why We Walk:
The 2018 Hartford Walk Like MADD is in honor of Tayler Jimenez and Tina Crosby, sister and mother of Alexa Crosby who was tragically killed by a drunk driver on August 25, 2010.
Alexa's story in her mom Tina's words:
"In the early morning hours of August 25th 2010,I woke to a loud knocking on my front door.Two state troopers dressed in rain gear were waiting to let me know my WHOLE WORLD as i knew it was no longer. They asked if I was Alexa Crosby's mom. My heart sunk to the pit of my stomach! They had the daunting task of notifying me that Alexa died in a drunk driving crash involving a tractor trailer. It still seems unreal. Alexa always was a bright girl with her future layed out in front of her. She was on target to graduate early from high school and attend Bay Path for nursing. The driver of the vehicle that Alexa was the back seat passenger in, had been drinking. It took one bad decision by Alexa that altered life forevermore. The driver survived along with the front seat passenger. She was convicted of second degree manslaughter and received a sentence of 13 months, suspended after serving 6 months in prison. Its been almost 8 years this August and I will continue to raise awareness through the loss of my sweet girl Alexa and Walk Like Madd."
