INDIAN ROCKS BEACH – Mothers Against Drunk Driving will host its fifth annual Pinellas County Walk Like MADD 5K and MADD Dash 5K Run Friday, Sept. 19.
Sponsored by Bright House Networks, the family-oriented event will be held on Indian Rocks Beach with festivities beginning at 5 p.m. and lasting until 9 p.m.
Event planners hope to raise $35,000 to help further MADD’s mission to eliminate drunk driving, support the victims and families of DUI crashes, and prevent underage drinking. The event also strives to rally support for MADD’s educational programs and victim services in Pinellas and
Pasco counties. All proceeds raised from the event remain in the community to further MADD’s life-saving mission of supporting and educating local families and youth on the tragic effects of drunk driving.
Participation is open to the public, and team participation by corporations, churches, and schools is encouraged. Registration is $15 for participants ages 5 to 21 and $20 for those ages 21 and over and includes a T-shirt and participation in the food, fun, and festivities.
Event guests can expect great food from local restaurants and a musical performance by a surprise guest.
