Walk Like MADD is a chance to do something about drunk and drugged driving in our community. This year, thousands of people in over 90 cities around the nation will participate in these 5k events to eliminate drunk driving. The 2019 Walk Like Madd event held at USF had over 5,000 participants. Caspers Company was there with our Smoothie Trailer team serving real fruit smoothie samples to everyone before and after the walk.
Having the opportunity to be at this particular event is both exciting and heartbreaking. Families of DUI victims share their compelling stories during a ceremony before the walk takes place. Different area businesses come together once a year to remember those that are no longer with us in hopes to bring awareness to driving under the influence.
