Featuring the slogan “Drunk Driving Ends Here,” the walk encourages people to literally take steps to end drunk driving. MADD recently launched its first-ever tagline: “No More Victims.”
MADD Broward County kicked-off the 2019 Walk Like MADD & MADD Dash Fort Lauderdale 5K brought to you by the Ultimate Software, La Croix & Lennox National Account Services, and UBS with a fun, uplifting and meaningful event at ArtServe in Fort Lauderdale.
