“It's mostly important to me because my grandma is very passionate about Mothers Against Drunk Driving,” said Assets High School student Fay. “It is a platform for me and my grandmother to bond on. I just got my license, and it is a fear of mine to get into an accident with a drunk driver. I think it is a fear of every parent. It's common knowledge at our age not to drink and drive. MADD has been part of my life for a long time. I know most of the ladies who serve on the MADD Board. Every year we tie a red ribbon on our family cars. Walk Like MADD will be fun and educational!"
For the first time, Assets has formed a team and is participating in the Walk Like MADD 2022. Join the Assets School team for Walk Like MADD 2022 drunk driving awareness and fundraising event on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Kaka`ako Waterfront Park. Put on your sneakers and wear your I Love Assets shirt for a 5K walk taking in beautiful views while learning plenty!
What makes this year's walk special is 25-year-old Alex Otte, the MADD National President, will walk and speak in Hawaii. At the age of 13, she nearly died as a result of an intoxicated boat driver who ran her over in the water. She will share her journey and deliver a powerful educational message.
Sign up tomorrow by clicking on the Walk Like MADD Assets School team page.
The MADD organization is special to High School Senate member Fay Weldon and her grandmother Kathryn Weldon, a MADD Hawaii Advisory Board Member for nearly two decades.
Our Vice President of Institutional Advancement Linda Jameson Myers, also serves on the MADD Hawaii Advisory Board and looks forward to seeing the Assets team members on Saturday for Walk Like MADD!
