Strides for Change is MADD Canada’s annual walk-a-thon. The annual 5 km walk supports Chapters and Community Leaders in their efforts to educate the public about the dangers of impaired driving and to help victims in their communities.
The campaign is also an opportunity to keep safe and sober driving top of mind during the spring and summer months when the rate of alcohol-related crashes are traditionally higher.
Events are held in communities across Canada over the late spring and early summer.
In 2017, the MADD Barrie/Simcoe Chapter hosted their Strides For Change event on Sunday, July 23 around the beautiful Tudhope Park in Orillia.
In addition to a leisurely walk along local parks or trails, the events feature a number of activities and attractions for participants.
