Strides for Change

About Strides for Change

Strides for Change is MADD Canada’s annual 5km walk/run/wheelchair event. This event supports our efforts to educate the public about the dangers of impaired driving and to help victims/survivors 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.

The Reasons for Giving

The funds we raise help the Chapter in so many ways. For example, they allow us to maintain a visible presence in our community to help spread our message through targeted advertising campaigns.

We are able to assist the London Police, as well as other surrounding Police Services, by helping to purchase devices to assist in the fight against impaired driving. Most importantly, it allows us to provide support to local victims of impaired driving, by offering personal support, court accompaniment, assistance in understanding the Ontario court system, and by sending victim families to the MADD Canada National Victims’ Weekend and Candlelight Vigil. We are currently working on another garden memorial project in the city that honours all victims and survivors of this preventable tragedy.

Impaired driving caused by alcohol and/or drugs remains one of the leading criminal causes of death in Canada and we are working very hard to change that. We need your help.
