2007 Strides for Change Walks to Aid MADD's Fundraising

Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Nissan North America, Inc. are asking families to participate in the 2007 Strides for Change walk in 30 cities nationwide and also challenge companies to help MADD reach its $2 million goal. "With Mother's Day and Father's Day being celebrated very soon, we just ask the public to honor their loved ones by participating or donating to the walks and for companies to designate walk teams nationwide in support of safer roadways," Glynn Birch, MADD's national president, said May 10. "Nissan has raised the bar for other corporations by supporting Strides for Change three years in a row, and we know there are many others that can step up to the plate."

The event kicked off in Raleigh, N.C.; Phoenix, Ariz.; and Columbus, Ohio. For a list of cities in which it will take place, visit www.stridesforchange.org. During the 2006 event, more than $1.6 million was raised, and more than 12,00 walkers participated, MADD says.

"Our ongoing work with MADD underscores our commitment to automotive safety beyond creating advanced safety technologies. By working with MADD, we are able to help educate drivers nationwide on many automotive safety aspects and make them aware of the consequences of their decisions," said Robert Yakushi, NNA's director of product safety, environmental.
