Event description

Description

We walk and run to end drunk and drugged driving.

Since 2009, our community has seen at least 4,000 DUI arrests made each year, according to the Kern County District Attorney's Office. That's more than 11 DUI arrests per day. Just think of the ones who weren’t arrested.

Sadly, many impaired drivers weren't stopped in time and instead caused major damage to innocent lives. In fact, 2018 has been the deadliest year on Kern County roadways in the last 10 years, and DUI drivers are largely to blame.

Bakersfield's WALK LIKE MADD & MADD DASH -- presented by Chain | Cohn | Stiles -- is your chance to do something about drunk driving in our community. For the sixth year, Kern County will come together on Sept. 28 to proclaim, "No More Victims."

You can help fight back by signing up for the 5K or 10K (walk or run), as a team captain, or volunteer. Parents: The event also features a free kid’s “fun run.” 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. Other attractions include food vendors, games, vendor booths, giveaways, and much more.

All funds 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.

Will you take up the fight by joining us at Walk Like MADD & MADD Dash?
