Mothers Against Drunk Driving is the nation’s largest nonprofit, working to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking. In South Florida, the chapter’s annual “Walk Like MADD” and the “MADD Dash” raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit community education, victim support services and youth programs. Later this month more than 2-thousand walkers and runners will take to the streets of Fort Lauderdale to participate in the 5th annual such event.
