Denver Walk Like MADD Event Details
We are so excited for this year’s Denver Walk Like MADD and are looking forward to seeing everyone in person at Sloan’s Lake Park! As a reminder, our event location within the park has moved! Walk Like MADD will be located at the north east corner of Sloan’s Lake Park – across the lake from where we had been for the past several years.
Online registration will close at 5:00 p.m. Friday afternoon, but walkers can still register at the event on Saturday morning. Registration will open at 7:30 a.m.

All event staff, volunteers, and vendors will be wearing masks. MADD strongly encourages Walk Like MADD participants to wear masks while in our event area and to socially distance from others while on the walk route. Masks will be available at no charge at Registration.
