This year, MADD is walking for Dr. Robert Geronemus. Dr. Geronemus, a noted nephrologist in our community and around the world, passed from a hit and run after speaking at a medical conference dinner in Miami days before his 61st birthday. His daughter Heather chairs Walk Like MADD & MADD Dash Fort Lauderdale in his memory and works passionately towards the day where we can say we have eliminated drunk driving.
Funds raised through Walk Like MADD help further MADD’s lifesaving mission and the Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving, which calls for high-visibility law enforcement, ignition interlocks or “in-car breathalyzers” for all convicted drunk drivers, support for the development of advanced technology and public support for these initiatives.
Founded in 1980 by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking. MADD has helped save more than 370,000 lives, reduce drunk driving deaths by more than 50 percent and passionately served over 840,000 victims.
