MADD Takes Part in JetBlue Park Community Corner Program

Written by: Abigail Jose, Florida Gulf Coast University Student and MADD Volunteer Intern

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) attended a Boston Red Sox game as the Community Corner nonprofit. The atmosphere was electric, the smell of hot dogs and pretzels filled the air. The sold-out game was crowded with people rushing to take pictures, getting food, drinks and finding their seats before the game started. Entering the stadium was an impressive and breathtaking scene. Everyone wore their team colors— red for the Boston Red Sox and blue for the Chicago Cubs.

At the game, we launched a Super Hero initiative that builds awareness for the different ways people can be a Super Hero in our community when it comes to ensuring our roadways are safe.  This initative was developed by Florida Gulf Coast University Volunteer Interns and graphically designed by Madailein Burke, Savannah College of Art and Design graduate.  The Super Hero initiative includes a road map for people to find their Super Hero identity.  Each Super Hero has a unique image and character description.  For more information on our Super Heroes, please click here.
