Mothers Against Drunk Driving is hosting its annual Northern Colorado Walk Like MADD fundraising event to raise awareness for drunk and drugged driving on Aug. 21 at Windsor Lake.

MADD is a nonprofit started by a mother in California whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver in 1980. Jeff Trujillo, in charge of this year’s walking event, said MADD is now the largest nonprofit in the nation dedicated to serving victims and survivors of drunk driving.

“Drunk driving, and now in Colorado, drugged driving with the legalization of marijuana is something that we shouldn’t even have to be talking about this anymore,” Trujillo said. “It’s something that is completely 100% preventable.”

Trujillo said the Walk Like MADD event is the largest event of the year through the nonprofit. Adults can register can register to walk in a 5K for $25, and youths ages 5 to 18 can register for $20. All people who register can choose to walk individually or with a team. — Source
