On Saturday, October 10, 2015, area members of MADD will take to the pavement along with thousands of people across the country. There will be a 5K walk to end drunk driving on Louisiana roadways, and roadways across the country.

Walk Like MADD Lake Charles will kick off at Prien Lake Park, from 7:30 a.m. - 11 a.m.

If you would like to donate to this worthy cause get more details at their walklikemadd.org site. You can also sign up as a walker, but there’s also an option for virtual walker for those who can’t be there and wish to donate to another walker or team.

I made my donation in the name of a close friend, Jeremy Olivier. Jeremy died in a tragic accident when the SUV he was driving was hit head on by a drunk driver in a pickup truck, in Sulphur, La., on September 27, 2014.
