The 9th annual Walk Like MADD and MADD Dash Ft. Lauderdale 5k takes place April 28th at Huizenga Plaza and the event's founder, Heather Geronemus says it's for a great cause.
"We're so excited to bring back sponsors and thousands of participants for a really meaningful day to raise money for MADD but really to bring the community together before tragedy occurs and unite everyone around a purpose of ending drunk driving," said Geronemus.
And it's an event you can bring your whole family to and even your pets.
"We have a kid zone sponsored by Memorial Hospital. We've got a community corner where other nonprofits can come and join us, sponsored by the Broward Sheriff's Foundation. It's just a really fun day with live music and really upbeat. I know the cause is sad and people like me have come to it for a sad reason but the purpose really is for everyone to come together to know that they can end drunk driving before more tragedy occurs," said Geronemus.
