Last year we raised $2150 and we hope to make an even greater impact this year!!
In September 2012, I was a passenger in a drunk driving crash. As a result of the crash, I fractured my C2 vertebrae in two places and was placed in a halo brace - think Regina George but worse - for almost 4 months. It's a miracle that I'm alive and able to walk.
But this walk isn't about me. It's about those who aren’t here today, those who are unable to move on their own and those who can no longer formulate a sentence as a result of drunk driving.
If you are not able to join us on the walk, any contribution or even a simple share to your timeline to spread awareness on the dangers of drunk driving would be HUGELY appreciated.
All proceeds will support the families and survivors who have gone through tragic loss because of drunk drivers.
