MADD 5k walk to be held Saturday morning at JetBlue Park in Lee County.

The race will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24, and will culminate with all participants having the unique experience of crossing home plate.

Walk Like MADD is an annual event hosted by Mothers Against Drunk Driving to help bring awareness and education about impaired driving on the streets of Southwest Florida.

Walk Like MADD is a family-friendly event, that encourages the participation of your four-legged family friends, too.

This one-of-a-kind event is held on the grounds of JetBlue Park, the Spring Training home of the Boston Red Sox.

All participants will receive an event t-shirt and custom medal, and awards will be given out in the various age categories. Video clips of participants will also be available.

The Gulf Coast Humane Society will be on hand both before and after the event, as will our Canine Ambassador Lt. Hope of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office’s Animal Cruelty Task Force.

Residents can register early at www.walklikemadd.org/SWFL or before 7 a.m. at JetBlue on Saturday morning.

All proceeds from this event will stay right here in our community to assist victims of impaired driving and to help educate the community to help keep our streets safe from impaired drivers.
