Annual Walk Like MADD fights to end drunk driving
The annual Walk Like MADD event took place in San Antonio on October 7th at Eisenhower Park. Hundreds of community members and survivors were in attendance to raise awareness on eliminating drunk driving.
This is an event that takes place all across the country, Aziza Delgado is a survivor herself. About a year ago, she lost her fiance Johnny Hernandez due to a wrong-way drunk driver that hit her family. Hernandez did not not make it because of the impact, and her daughter, Amina, was left in a coma. Fortunately, Aimina recovered and is doing well.
At last year's Walk Like MADD event, over $3M were raised on the national level. The money raised is used to provide programs and services at no cost.
Background information on MADD from the website:
"On September 5, 1980, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was incorporated and the mission as stated in its Articles of Incorporation were “To aid the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, to aid the families of such victims and to increase public awareness of the problem of drinking and drugged driving."
