MADD Hamilton PIA Law Strides for Change

MADD Canada and the MADD Hamilton Chapter are pleased to present our very first Strides for Change event. MADD Hamilton PIA Law Strides for Change has been designed to be MADD Canada’s signature walk event, which offers corporations and individuals the unique opportunity to enhance the health and safety of our communities. Every step taken and pledge raised will help raise much needed funds and heighten awareness of MADD Hamilton’s vital programs and services.

Every year, hundreds of Canadians are killed and tens of thousands are injured in crashes involving drivers who have consumed alcohol and/or drugs. These tragic deaths and injuries are 100% preventable. We are working very hard to change that.  We need your help!
