From 2019-2021, drunk driving deaths in the United States increased by 31 percent. This is a 100 percent preventable crime, and MADD’s goal is to see a future with no more victims.

More than 1,000 walkers and runners are expected to attend the event. Since it was established in 2011, this event has raised more than $3.7 million that stays in the South Florida community to save lives and support victims of drunk driving, making it the most successful grassroots fundraiser in the history of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
