Denver Mayor, Committed Supporters, Volunteers, Victims And Survivors Join MADD For 5K Walk To Eliminate Drunk Driving

DENVER, Aug. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than 1,000 walkers supported Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) at the 7th annual Denver Walk Like MADD® event on Saturday, August 4th, raising over $100,000 to help eliminate drunk driving and support victims/survivors in Colorado.

Mayor Michael B. Hancock of the City & County of Denver kicked off this year's walk as the featured speaker. "MADD's work is important to Denver because even one injury or life lost to drunk driving is one too many," said Mayor Hancock. "The City of Denver is proud to join the participants of Walk Like MADD to support keeping Colorado's communities safe. Let's put drunk driving in the history books. Join us in delivering a world-class city where everyone matters."

Walkers completed a 5K route circling Sloan's Lake Park in Denver. Participants also enjoyed festivities, including a Health & Safety Fair, Kids' Zone, Teen Scene, and Doggie Den.

Funds raised through Walk Like MADD further MADD's life-saving mission and the Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving ®, which calls for high-visibility law enforcement, ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers and support for the development of advanced technology to automatically determine if a driver is drunk.

The 2012 Denver Walk Like MADD is presented by Bachus & Schanker, LLC, MADD Colorado's Statewide Sponsor, and American Family Insurance.

"We are excited to support Walk Like MADD as the Statewide Sponsor of MADD Colorado," says Darin L. Schanker, founding partner of Bachus & Schanker, LLC. "We see the devastating effects of drunk driving on victims and their families. Through our contributions and continued participation as MADD Colorado's Statewide Sponsor, we support the invaluable programs and victim services provided by MADD."

David Carter, Colorado Sales Director for American Family Insurance, also expressed his company's support for MADD.  "We're honored to be a Local Presenting Sponsor of Walk Like MADD. We're coming together as neighbors, co-workers, families and friends to join MADD in making our roads safer."

The Denver Walk Like MADD is also sponsored by King Soopers, KOSI 101, and Bell & Pollock, PC.

"The injuries and loss of life are tragedies," says Brad Pollock of the law firm of Bell & Pollock. " Walk Like MADD allows us to be a part of MADD's mission to keep our roads safe and support victims of drunk driving crashes."

In 2010 alone, 127 people in Colorado were killed in drunk driving crashes. MADD Colorado serves 2,000 victim/survivors each year.
