Walk Like MADD, MADD’s signature walk, is a fun, community-driven 5K walk that raises funds and saves lives. According to the Traffic Crash Statistics Report 2010 presented by Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, the counties that MADD Central Florida Affiliate serves (Brevard, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, and Volusia) saw alcohol related injuries decrease in 2010 by 17.57%, alcohol related crashes decrease in 2010 by 17.39%, and alcohol related fatalities decrease in 2010 by 7.56%. While we are encouraged that all of these areas saw a decrease, that meant that in 2010 the counties that MADD Central Florida Affiliate serves still had 2,123 alcohol related injuries, 3,198 alcohol related crashes, and 172 alcohol related fatalities. Help us bring all of those numbers to ZERO by participating in our 1st Annual Central Florida Walk Like MADD 5k event!
