Event description

Description

Kern County’s roads see at least 4,000 DUI arrests each year, according to the Kern County District Attorney’s Office. That’s more than 11 DUI arrests per day. Sadly, many impaired drivers aren’t stopped in time, and instead cause major damage to innocent lives.

Bakersfield’s WALK LIKE MADD & MADD DASH is your chance to do something about drunk and drugged driving in our community. For the fifth year, Kern County will come together — on Saturday, Sept. 29 — to proclaim, “Drunk and Drugged Driving Ends Here!”

In what has become the largest fundraising run in Bakersfield, you can help by signing up as a walker or runner (5K or 10K), team captain, or volunteer. Parents: The event also features a free kids fun run, where the first 100 children also get a free superhero cape. You can even get involved if you aren’t able to attend by signing up as a “virtual walker,” or by asking a donation toward a participant or team who has been affected.

All proceeds raised from this event stay in Kern County to help innocent victims of DUI crashes, help raise awareness of the DUI epidemic in our community, and helps fund MADD Kern County educational programs.
