OUR SIGNATURE FUNDRAISER & AWARENESS EVENT.. WALK LIKE MADD & 5K
Presented by Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice and Purtz
In Southwest Florida, this annual awareness and fundraising event is held at jetBlue Park at Fenway South and features a one-mile walk and five-kilometer USATF certified run ending on home plate at jetBlue Park at Fenway South in Fort Myers. After the walk and run, the event has family and pet friendly activities as well as music and food from local celebrity chefs and restaurants. Registration fees and other contributions directly benefit victims and survivors of drunk, drugged and substance-impaired driving as well as funds MADD SWFL’s free educational prevention programs.
The Walk and 5K in 2018 is the third annual Walk Like MADD & 5K event. The local nonprofit has seen a 60% increase in participation and funds; however, it is still not enough to combat the public health issue of drunk and drugged driving in the Southwest Florida community.
